The purpose of the governance manual is to guide APC’s governance processes in accordance with the bylaws and APC’s organisational practice. It is intended to help and support the council and board of directors acting on behalf of the organisation of their duties, responsibilities, and the various legislative and regulatory conditions which govern their conduct. It also seeks to ensure that principles of good and accountable governance are applied by all council members and directors in all their dealings in respect to, and on behalf of, APC.

Reports on progress made in implementing APC’s 2009-12 Strategic Plan during 2010. Prepared for the APC Board of Directors by APC staff.
This document represents APC’s broad strategic framework for 2009-10, based on the priorities identified by APC members in late 2007 at the member meeting in Rio de Janeiro (November 2007). It follows on APC’s previous strategic cycle, 2004-8 which was based on priorities identified by members at the Cartagena member meeting in November 2003.
The framework, strategies and plans included in this document incorporates input on a draft plan presented to APC members in December 2008 during an online council meeting.
APC’s eight person board meets periodically face to face although mainly online. This will be the first meeting of 2010.
