2023 Annual General Meeting

RCOA’s 2023 AGM will place on Friday 17 November, via Microsoft Teams from 12.30pm-2pm (AEDT).

RCOA’s AGM will feature a panel discussion on the following topic:  

The global dialogue on resettlement and complementary pathways: What can Australia contribute and what can we learn? 

In 2023-24, Australia is chairing the global Consultations on Resettlement and Complementary Pathways (CRCP) [previously the Annual Tripartite Consultations on Resettlement] for the first time in 12 years. This dialogue brings together governments, NGOs and refugee representatives from around 30 states involved in refugee resettlement.

RCOA and the Department of Home Affairs are working with UNHCR Geneva and the CRCP Refugee Advisory Group to chair international meetings in October (online), February (in Sydney) and June (Geneva). The panel will discuss what Australia, as one of the three largest resettlement states, can share with others and what we can learn from this dialogue.

  • Sandra Elhelw, CEO, Settlement Council of Australia
