The 2018 ACCA General Assembly (GA) was the first ACCA GA in which I participated. Ahead of the GA, I was not quite sure of what to expect, but had expectations of a pleasant, collaborative and participatory event. The GA surpassed my initial expectations, to say the least. The agenda for this year’s event presented a great opportunity for me to partake in all the proceedings, and network with participants.
I loved meeting and chatting with the Coalition members, and seeing the lovely faces which represent their organisations. For me, the NGO Fair was the highlight of the event; it was the climax of the two-days of proceedings, which provided participants with a fantastic opportunity to not only speak about the event and our daily work, but also to see the work of our partners. I wait in anticipation for the next ACCA GA to catch up with fellow colleagues and learn more about the work of our partners and their achievements since the 2017 ACCA GA.
