Governing Council Meetings


SPC's governing council is the Conference of the Pacific Community, which meets every two years. In years when the Conference does not meet, the Committee of Representatives of Governments and Administrations (CRGA — a committee of the Conference) is empowered to make decisions.  


In 2013, the CRGA and the Conference were held in November in Fiji.

Regional technical or sectoral meetings play an important part in achieving and reviewing SPC’s work programmes. Workshops, training courses, seminars, regional or sub-regional meetings are organised throughout the year by SPC programmes and sections.
