Suggestions from the floor at the 2006 AVP annual conference
  1. High profile patrons will be sought.
  2. The existing regional and country coordinators will be recognised in the regional committee.
  3. The strategic planning committee will find experienced coordinators for each committee. Hopefully there will be a co-coordinators in training. Each committee will be as open as possible with the understanding that there is an education and development mandate for each committee. This will be modelled on the use of co-facilitators in AVP training.
  4. Jeremy Routledge will develop the QPN- Africa AVP proposal in consultation with others who have been involves to present to the strategy and fundraising committees by the end of September.
  5. The IDRC will be report to the International conference which will remain the highest decision making body. The issues of the constitution and governance will be addressed by the legal committee.
  6. Committees will not necessarily meet face to face and will communicate electronically
