Einladung YATA – Field Trip to the 1 (German/Netherlands) Corps

27 April, 2017

Dear YATA members,

YATA Netherlands and YATA Germany invite you to a visit of the 1 (German/Netherlands) Corps in Münster, Germany. From May 22nd to 23rd you will have the chance to visit the Headquarters of 1 (GE/NL) Corps and get a first-hand impression of the organization’s history, tasks and the future of this multinational unit.

The 1 (GE/NL) Corps was inaugurated in 1995 and has become one of NATO’s High Readiness (Land) Headquarters. Its tasks include “high intensity operations, crisis management and peace support operations”. In this context, the corps took command of NATO’s ISAF mission in Afghanistan in 2003. Currently twelve nations contribute to the corps.

During the visit you will have the opportunity to learn about the corps’ mission and engage in a formal as well as informal exchange with the headquarters’ personnel. The trip will also allow for the exchange between the German and Dutch YATA members.

Ten members of each of the two YATA chapters will have the opportunity to visit the corps. Please apply via the application form until May 8th, 2017.

Please find the trip’s agenda here.

Individual travel arrangements will be made by the participants. YATA Germany will reimburse participants’ travel costs up to 25,00 EUR. Accommodation during the stay will be provided by the 1 (GE/NL) Corps.

We are looking forward to welcoming you to this international YATA experience.
