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.
APC’s eight person board meets periodically face to face although mainly online. This will be the first meeting of 2010.

Fifteen years after the Beijing World Conference on Women, IPS remains
committed to in-depth reporting on progress achieved and challenges
facing women and girls.
The APC women’s programme meets to discuss programmatic work including the EroTICs and GEM initiatives.
