COME GROW YOUR BACKBONE IN PLOVIDV! 1st - 5th April Plovdiv, Bulgaria

A WA R M WELCOME ! Dear IFMSA Friends, I am really glad to have the privilege to organize a TNT in my mandate, this has been a dream of mine since before I was elected in this position. I want you to know that I will do my best to give you a fruitful and pleasant TNT in our beloved Bulgaria, and Plovdiv, the European Capital for culture for the year 2019. Whether you are applying to be a participant or a trainer, we want you to feel at home in the Balkans, and we want to give you a proper experience, in visiting our home, and in receiving a TNT education. With the adoption of the new IOGs for Capacity Building during MM2019, and with the confusion that may have arisen in some of our members, I want you to know that we have planned ahead and are organizing a TNT that is in line with them. We want to choose the best trainers we have, in order to provide you with a proper TNT education. Of course, it cannot be all work, no fun, which is why we have left some time for fun and socialization with our social program. You will get to see Plovidv on a free walking tour, to sing your hearts out during our Karaoke, and to party like a Bulgarian. I want us, together, to have an event that will go smoothly, and from which everyone will return home with pleasant memories and a heart full of love for our country and association. I am looking forward to meeting you in our home and giving you a few days that you will never forget. If you ever need help or have a question, do not hesitate to contact me, I am always available to help. Kind regards, Daniel Jaffal Vice President on International Affairs and Capacity Building

AMSB P R ESIDENT Dearest IFMSA Friends, On the verge of our 35th National General Assembly, we have decided to organize a humble pre-NGA in the form of a TNT, and we are more than thrilled to invite you to join us and participate in it. We in AMSB realize the importance of having an arsenal of trainers, which is why we have decided to organize this event, and make it as accessible to participants as possible because we believe that everyone should have a chance to develop their skills and become a better version of themselves. AMSB or the Association of Medical Students in Bulgaria is an independent, nonpolitical, non-governmental organization of medical students in Bulgaria. The Association was established on 03.03.1990 and is a full member of the IFMSA. And we are inviting you to Plovdiv, one of the twin European Capital cities of culture for the year 2019. With the coming of spring and the beginning of the season of our beloved Rose, we want to welcome a few more flowers in the face of you, our lovely participants, who will from this TNT blossom into incredible trainers. Insert message from Daniel here!

Kind regards, Yolin Doncheva Vice-President and President ad interim
