15th ICA-AP Regional Assembly

The biennial Regional Assembly, represented by all members directly, is the highest authority of the ICA Asia and Pacific (ICA-AP). The Regional Assembly, a central policy making and representative body brings together all members once every two years, providing them a platform for discussing multiple issues concerning development and growth of co-operative organisations as well as opportunity for networking and forming alliances for mutual benefit.

The Regional Assembly plays a vital role in strengthening the democratic governance process of cooperatives in the region by building consensus on issues and approving the agenda after discussion to the satisfaction of all members. The first Regional Assembly was held in 1995 and the tradition continues since then. The Regional Assembly encompasses the Cooperative Forum and various events organized by the ICA-AP Regional Committees.

The 11th Asia and Pacific Regional Women’s Forum will be held in conjunction with the 33rd ICA Congress on Deepening the Cooperative Identity.

Global Workshop on Cooperatives in Educational Institutions

‘Catch them Young’, is the popular premise on which strengthening of any movement rests. The cooperative movement, too, needs the infusion of young blood and ICA has taken the right step in this direction by creating a space for a youth representative on its Board and conveying the primacy of youth. Providing adequate exposure to cooperative principles and values to young people would contribute towards building stronger cooperative identity.
