Annual Meetings

IAMLADP meets annually under the chairmanship of the United Nations Under-Secretary-General for General Assembly and Conference Management. The annual meetings are hosted by a member organization and, since 2001, are co-chaired by the host organization’s counterpart. 

Currently, the rotation pattern for hosting an annual meeting is as follows: a UN duty station (New York, Geneva, Nairobi, Vienna), followed by a UN system organization, and then a non-UN system organization. 

The 2018 Annual Meeting was hosted by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), in Montreal, Canada, on 26-28 June 2018. 

Annual meetings normally consist of a plenary session lasting up to two days and a half-day executive session. The IAMLADP task forces report on their activities, and members discuss ideas and share experiences in plenaries and breakout peer-learning sessions. The proceedings are reflected in reports that are drafted by the host and reviewed and issued by the secretariat prior to posting on the IAMLADP Members Only site.
