Key Events & Activities:

Annual General Meeting/National Conference

The Annual General Meeting (AGM) is held as part of the Annual National Conference, which is P.A.C.I.F.I.C.A Inc’s largest gathering in any year. Members across the country get together to conduct the main business of the organisation but also to celebrate being together.  All members participate in the AGM and exercise their vote on all decisions made. Members participate in workshops in line with the yearly conference theme, weaving, fashion and speech contests and celebrating being together as Pacific women and enjoying the fellowship.

Elections of members of the National Executive take place bi-annually. All members of this team: Northern, Central and Southern Vice Presidents, National Secretary, National Treasurer, National Communications Officer, Youth Representative, National Assistant Secretary and National Assistant Treasurer stand down after two years but may be re-elected. There is no limit on the number of terms these women may serve. In line with the Constitution the National President can only serve a maximum of two terms (four years) before having to step down.

All Regional Conferences, the National Council Meeting, and the AGM, are preceded by a National Executive meeting. ​

 

Regional Mini Conferences

P.A.C.I.F.I.C.A Inc has a regional structure consisting of three regions: Northern, Central and South Island.  Once a year, each region holds a regional conference where branches come together to discuss issues, project ideas/updates and achievements with the National Executive. The Vice President of each region chairs their own regional conference.​

 

National Council Meeting

Once a year, the National Executive meets with all Branch Presidents and their Executive Teams at the National Council Meeting. This is the official forum where general business items for the upcoming Annual General Meeting are tabled. The National President chairs this meeting and each branch has the right to exercise a singular vote.​
