This page is designed to guide civil society organizations on how to participate in the activities of the Organization of American States. Please direct any questions to summitcso@oas.org.

There are three ways that civil society organizations can participate in the activities of the OAS. First, a civil society organization can register to the OAS, as outlined in Permanent Council Resolution 759.  Second, if a civil society organization would like to participate without registering, they can attend meetings of the General Assembly, the Inter-American Council for Integral Development (CIDI), and other specific Conferences of the OAS. Third, a civil society organization can also enter into cooperation agreements with the General Secretariat or other OAS organs.
