Meeting organisation

Quarterly national meetings

The ESC agrees the meeting programme. 

  • The Coordinator is appointed as convener for the meeting
  • The Co-chairs chair the meeting
  • Set the detailed programme in consultations with co-chairs
  • Ensure high quality speakers and trainers, including from pharmaceutical companies
  • Ensure high quality background material is produced and the meeting is advertised
  • Oversee production of a meeting report

The coordinator handles administrative and logistical aspects of arranging meetings.

Ad hoc meetings

Ad hoc meetings operate in a similar way to the quarterly meetings.


Time for networking is included in all meetings, and wherever possible, on other occasions when AfroCAB members are present, for example at international conferences. Suggestions on how to increase opportunities for advocates to meet face-to-face are welcome (and, importantly, offers to organise these). An ESC member will aim to attend every networking occasion.
