Field 8 – Additional Information to Share
1. Triennial Conference:
PPSEAWA International since its founding in 1928 has continued the tradition of convening its members from all National Member Organizations (NMOs) for the PPSEAWA International Triennial Conference. The Conference is always hosted by one of the NMOs whose invitation to host the Conference is brought to the Council during the previous conference.
As stated in Article VI of the By-Laws, Section 1:
“The objective of a Pan Pacific and Southeast Asia Women’s Association Conference shall be to bring together the women of these areas for better understanding and for cooperation toward the advancement of their common interests, having in view especially the interests of the family, including its adjustment to modern economic and social conditions within each separate country and between international groups.”
Various Themes of the Conferences since the First Conference in Hawaii in 1928 have been those which reflect issues that the Women of the Region care about and are passionate about. Such examples of themes in previous International Conferences include:
(a) “Pacific Women Unite for the United Nations” for the Fifth Conference in Hawaii in 1949.
(b) “Women need continuing both formal and non-formal education to successfully meet the new challenges as well as to preserve the cultural heritage” for the 10th Conference in the Kingdom of Tonga.
(c) The 15th Conference was held in Saratoga Springs, New York, USA in 1981. The actual business meeting was held at the Skidmore College after which the Conference moved to New York City where delegates were accommodated at the Fashion District but experienced being close to the United Nations and attending meetings that were in sessions. The theme was: “Education and Training Women”
(d) The 20th Conference was held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia with the Theme: “Strengthening Alliances for a Better World Towards the 21st Century”.
Highlight of the upcoming Fiji Conference:
The Theme of the upcoming 25th Triennial Conference in Suva, Fiji on 24th August to 31st August, 2013 is: “Managing the Environment for a Sustainable and Peaceful World”.
No matter where in the region of the Pan Pacific and Southeast Asia Women Association the Triennial Conference is being held, the major theme has always been:
“The Exchange of National Experience” which is still as important in the beginning of days” as noted by one of our PPSEAWA sisters.
2. Challenges faced by being an International Women’s Organization whose mission is Peace:
The PPSEAWA International regions include the Southeast Asia, Pacific regions, including Australia and New Zealand, Russia, Vladivostok (Russia) , Hawaii and the continental USA. Currently there are sixteen active National Member Organizations (NMOs). The main challenge for this organization is communication. Internet accessibility has remained the challenge which needs to addressed by PPSEAWA International Council. Personal accesses to hardware computers and continuous interruptions of electricity to most of our Pacific Region NMOS have been the source communication breakdown.
The ability to attend triennial conferences is another as this actually indicates that there is still disparity amongst our Women groups in terms economic viability of attending international Conferences. The Organization is working towards encouraging our young members to participate in such international Conferences by funding part of the trip to Conference’s venue.
