The WCPA Steering Committee meets once a year at a location decided by the Committee, and normally at the invitation of WCPA members in one of the IUCN regions or sub-regions. The meeting is limited to Steering Committee members, with Task Force and Specialist Group members and others invited at the Chair’s discretion. The meeting includes reporting on GPAP and WCPA activities, discussion and decisions on important upcoming events and initiatives, review of the GPAP Intersessional Programme, and discussion and decisions on WCPA directions and priorities for the upcoming year.
