AGM and World Conference
Update on InterPride and EPOA AGM and World Conference
The InterPride and EPOA AGMs and World Conference that was to take place in Oslo in October 2020 has been moved to a virtual format due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Virtual Conference will be held October 1-3, 2020. We have not taken the decision lightly and we want to thank the team at Oslo Pride who have worked so hard in planning the AGM and World Conference and who have been pragmatic and constructive as we worked towards our decision.
InterPride World Conference
Registration for the conference closed on September 20, 2020; at this time, there is a $50.00 late registration fee.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to register for the conference. All participants must be from a Member Pride Organization.
Because of the conference format change, we will need everyone that previously paid for a registration for the in-person conference to re-register for the Virtual Conference.
Time will be reserved for regional meetings to take place to conduct regional business and for members to network.
Please view a schedule of workshops below.
The InterPride AGM will be conducted in a virtual format on the weekends of October 3 and 4 and October 10 and 11, 2020. InterPride’s Conference Structure and Integrity Committee (CSIC) will be working with the officers of InterPride to finalize the meeting times so we can update the members on our progress and conduct the required business.
The EPOA AGM will go ahead online on October 3 and 4. The Board of EPOA will email members with information on how they can participate. Bids for EuroPride 2023, the AGM 2021 and board elections will go ahead.
Both the InterPride and EPOA schedules will be arranged to avoid clashes and to ensure all European members can attend both.
World Conference Caucuses
InterPride will continue the process of holding caucuses in conjunction with the conference. Earlier this year a committee worked to develop a list of caucuses to be held. We will schedule a ninety-minute session for each caucus the week prior to the conference with a shorter check-in scheduled during the conference weekend. We are looking for individuals from the affinity of a caucus to serve as the facilitator of each caucus. The facilitator’s mail role is to keep the discussion moving so all individuals can participate in the discussion.

In addition to Pride-related topics, we will be centering issues surrounding racial injustice, violence directed at our communities, and surviving financial crisis.
