The ALIA National Policy Congress 2003

The ALIA National Policy Congress (NPC) is an important consultative mechanism which ensures that ALIA members have the opportunity to participate in the policy-making process of the Association. NPC2003 will use the two-tier model developed for NPC2002. This model is based on ALIA group representatives meeting at a regional level and electing one representative from the regional NPC meeting to attend the national meeting in Canberra. There will be fifteen representatives at the Canberra NPC consisting of the eight regional (state/territory) representatives, representatives from ALIA committees and issues-based ALIA groups with issues relevant to the NPC agenda. The ALIA Board of Directors will attend as well as relevant ALIA National Office staff.

The regional NPC meetings will be held in each capital city from late July through to early August. Please watch the events and NPC pages of the website for details of these meetings. Reports from these meetings will be available here. Information from the reports will be included in the agenda for the NPC in Canberra on 19-20 September. Remote regional ALIA groups unable to send representatives to the regional meetings will be given the opportunity to provide input to the NPC by alternative methods.

NPC2003 regional meetings will discuss:

  • ALIA Research and Exchange Partnership (REAP) initiative;

  • Towards 2010 a draft for consultation that builds on the futures planning session held during the March Board of Directors meeting (see Frontline in the June issue of inCite and 'Board of Directors meeting' inCite, April 2003, p29);

  • celebrating successes; and

  • an opportunity to place Questions on Notice for the Canberra NPC meeting.

If you have any questions about the 2003 National Policy Congress please contact membership (please remove the '.nospam' from address) at ALIA National Office on 02 6215 8229.
