About ILGA World Board

The ILGA World Board is made up of representatives from the 6 ILGA regions (Pan Africa, Latin America and Carribean, North America, Europe, Asia and Oceania), and the ILGA Secretariats (Trans, Women, Intersex and Bisexual). The two Co-Convenors for ILGA Oceania sit on and represent the ILGA Oceania region on the ILGA World Board. 

Board Elections

Nominations are now open for all Board members for ILGA Oceania - 4 Australia, 2 New Zealand Aotearoa, and 4 Pacific.
If you think you have the time to work with a group of like minded and dedicated individuals to the work of ILGA, find a member organisation to nominate you.
DEADLINE for Nominations Close 19th August 2018!

Proposed Board Changes

There will be some discussion in Apia Samoa to change the Board compositon to Australia 2, New Zealand 2, and Pacific 2 with the remaining Board members to be one representing Women, one for Trans, one for Intersex, one for Bisexual and one for Youth.
ILGA Oceania will also have one for Elder as a mark of respect to the elderly and the role they play in our region.
The effect of this is that the Board to be elected in Samoa will be a caretaker Board until the World Conference in Wellington in March 2019, when ILGA Oceania will have a Special General Meeting to appoint the new Board in the new format.
