Union region conferences, organised by the members and other partners, are held regularly. These events provide an opportunity to present region-specific research, discuss innovative local programmes and offer training targeted to regional needs.
Other activities are defined by the region members and are usually planned during the annual meeting at The Union World Conference. Examples of activities include hosting workshops, planning advocacy events and publishing newsletters. Members can also become more involved by standing for election as a region officer, serving as the Region Representative to the Board of Directors or chairing the region conference committee.
