After few rounds of public meetings and debates, the representatives of the local actors decided to form an NGO which will be entrusted with the organization of Sibiu/Hermannstadt 2007.
The Juridical Department of the Municipality undertook the first steps towards establishing a non-lucrative association named Association Sibiu/Hermannstadt European Capital of Culture 2007 and registering it in a court of law according to Romanian laws. The operations of the Association will be internally and externally audited.

A third office will be opened soon in the very centre of the city, in the Large Square, in the building of the City Hall which is presently under restoration.
