Ambassador’s cocktail, Wednesday 4 October 2023


The Staff Association would like to thank all the participants in the cocktail, delegates from Member States and Associate Member States delegations and our “ambassadors” colleagues who are always available, and also people who contributed to the success of this event, the logistics and catering services. We do not forget the secretariat of the Association for the organization and also the secretariat of the Council for sending invitations to delegations.

Twice a year, after the Finance Committee meeting, the Staff Association organizes a cocktail party bringing together delegates from the Member States and Associate Member States -- since 2017 -- with some of our fellow citizens, chosen by the Staff Association to act as “ambassadors” of the Association and of the personnel.

These cocktails are an opportunity to discuss with delegates certain topics selected by the Staff Association according to current events, but also to exchange more broadly about CERN and its personnel. These discussions, which take place in the national language of each State and in a convivial atmosphere, also provide an opportunity to hear the positions and arguments of the national delegations.
