On 9th July 2013, the Regional Information Centre - Burgas organised a thematic conference titled "The path to project - lessons learned and good practices". The event took place in the building of the Regional Administration of Burgas. More than 80 representatives of community cultural clubs and libraries from the region of Burgas participated.
The meeting was opened by Mr. Pavel Marinov, Governor of Burgas Region. In his speech he appealed to the participants to actively seek information, as well as the help of the Regional Information Centre - Burgas. The guest speakers from the Bulgarian Library and Information Association, Mrs. Anna Popova and Mrs. Eli Popova presented some successful projects of the organisation, as well as the possibilities offered in support of the community cultural clubs and libraries.
The event aroused great interest in the visitors and after a long discussion on the state of the present-day libraries and identification of the need for constant innovation in the services offered, the librarians learned where to look for the current possibilities to apply under the operational programmes. Later on they were familiarised with the main steps in the preparation and implementation of a successful project.
