A regional conference needs to be held by ILGA Oceania, in order that an ILGA Oceania AGM can occur.

d) ELECTIONS - Elect a full set of members of the ILGA Oceania board, in line with ILGA Oceania constitutional requirements and ILGA Oceania standing orders’ requirements.

e) PROPOSALS – Address any proposals, e.g. proposed changes to the ILGA Oceania constitution or standing orders that have been submitted by ILGA Oceania members, according to the ILGA Oceania constitution’s timetable [ILGA Oceania Constitution, cl31(10)] and NSW (Australia) legal requirements [ILGA Oceania Constitution, cl35 - Associations Incorporation Act 2009 (NSW), s39].

f) FINANCIAL REPORTS - Accept the financial reports to be submitted in the second half of the year (2022), if this is possible according to the Australian “NSW Department of Fair Trading” rules.
