Dansk Magisterforening is a professional membership organization that decided to establish a recurring Congress 2016, which should act as the association's supreme political authority.
The task was to create a Congress that complied with the formal guidelines while challenging a tradition filled format, by creating a forum where Dansk Magisterforening could meet their members out of members' interests and wishes for information, influence and cohesion. The Congress should also provide an opportunity to involve members in the realization of a Princip Program established for the association and thereby ensure that the content were converted into concrete actions that met the members in their daily lives with the conditions and needs each member experience.
Format assisted Dansk Magisterforening in creating the basis for the Congress by providing advice in the planning of the program, formulation and dissemination of messages, and the handling and communication with members. We developed participatory process designs to "workshops" where members activated their knowledge by producing concrete ideas and solutions for the implementation of the work program. Additionally, Format handled all coordination with venue, technical setup, catering, transport, hotel etc. and conducted the additional actual execution of the congress.
Create a Congress that complied with the formal guidelines, as well as inspiring the members to participate and engage in the decisions regarding information, influence and cohesion

“Dansk Magisterforening has worked with Format in terms of the planning and execution of our first Congress in November 2016. We have greatly appreciated working with Format in the process of scheduling content and the many practical tasks related to the Congress. Format contributed with valuable experience and great flexibility and has throughout been a good, critical and responsive partner. The cooperation had a significant impact on Dansk Magisterforening’s ability to conduct a very successful first congress”
