APGAW tends to run roundtable meetings and evidence gathering inquiries. These are not open meetings but the group is open to individuals who have an interest in the subject being discussed attending -please contact the secretariat. We do not publish all of our meeting minutes so there maybe subjects we have debated which are not featured on this website – please do email us if you have a particular issue and we will let you know if we have discussed it and what the outcome was.
APGAW sets an annual workplan each year and then follows the chosen topics throughout the year to avoid having one-off meeting and not ensuring outcomes. Most issues cannot be resolved in just one meeting and do take substantial periods of time to get legislative change.
The Group holds two member surgeries each year for associate members to attend, speak directly to officers and raise topics. The officers may agree to support their campaign by writing to the Minister, raising it in Parliament or holding a meeting.
