    Resolutions to the 30th Triennial World Conference

    ACWW Policy Resolutions give your Member Society the opportunity to have its voice heard on the global stage. Resolutions are brought by societies from all over the world to the Triennial World Conference, where voting member societies decide which ones should be adopted by popular vote. Those which are adopted provide a mandate for action for all members globally - this is what gives ACWW its policy agenda and informs the Strategic Plan adopted by the Board at the start of each Triennium. The South Pacific Area have submitted 4 resolutions for consideration at the Area Conference - those which are adopted will go forward for consideration at the Triennial World Conference.
