Introducing NIDOE to the Media NIDO Europe’s members are Nigerians resident in Europe from a variety of professional backgrounds with years of experience in their various fields. Outstanding Nigerians who by conventional definition are neither professionals nor academics are welcome as members if they’re able and capable of contributing to national development in their respective endeavours.

NIDO Europe is made up of 20 Regional Chapters which are governed by Chapter Executives headed by a Chapter Chairperson. NIDO chapters as of December 2016 are: Austria, Belgium-Luxemburg, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Netherland, Poland, Russia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, United Kingdom (two chapters), Ukraine and Portugal. The 20 Chapters are governed by an umbrella body, the 11-member NIDO Europe Executive Committee (CEC) headed by the Chairman. The CEC and the Chapter Chairs constitute the Board of Trustees (BOT).

NIDO Europe Media Summit 2016 The immediate objective of the NIDOE 2016-2018 Executive Term is a holistic repositioning of NIDOE to make it operationally a self-reliant body, meeting the needs of its members from its own resources. Secondly, to make the organisation become project-driven and possessing the ability to promote national development by highlighting the trade & investment opportunities in Nigeria and providing a professional resource pool from where national developmental interests could be catered to.

To achieve the above objectives, the BOT is embarking on a media campaign to create a greater awareness of NIDOE among prospective members in Europe, the political, diplomatic and business circles in our countries of residence and in Nigeria. This Media Summit will bring experts together to explore ways to achieve the objectives of the Media Campaign The Summit should lay the foundation for a sustainable NIDOE-Media Relationship and produce strategies for the realisation of the NIDOE Social Economic Development Program 2016-2018.

The event will also establish a framework for a NIDOE “Media and Strategic Team” that will be responsible for presenting NIDOE position in the media on important national issues on a regular basis.
