United Nations Inter-Agency Games 2017, Vienna 3-7 May - Official Invitation

Dear Colleagues, Please find attached the official invitation to the 44th United Nations Inter-Agency Games (UNIAG) which will be hosted by IAEA from 3 – 7 May 2017 in Vienna, Austria. The purpose of the United Nations Inter-Agency Games (IAG) is to enable current and retired members of the agencies and organizations of the United Nations system and other eligible organizations to get to know each other through sports and other recreational activities and thereby to improve mutual understanding and work relations. The departments of Human Resources (HR) and the various staff bodies acknowledge that staff participation in social and sporting activities contributes to their well-being as well as that of the organization and staff relations. Sports and other recreational activities develop team building and drive motivation, attributes which are conducive to forming future leaders who are better equipped to meet urgent challenges and stresses that come with it. Further details will be made available on the website (http://www.interagencygames.org/) which presently is under construction. Eligibility criteria for participation as per UNIAG rule 14 (http://interagencygames.org/iag2016/general-and-discipline-rules/) are as follows: "Any person of a participating organization or agency who has served under contract, including supernumeraries, for at least three months or who holds a contract of at least three months duration and, in either case, holds a contract effective at least one month before the IAG open and during their entire duration, is eligible for selection as a member of a team. Any person who has retired from any participating organization or agency is also eligible to participate in the IAG."
