Congress Committee

Overview

The Congress Committee is responsible for the organisation of the RCOG World Congress which takes place annually. The Congress is held for two consecutive years overseas and every third year it returns to the UK.

In international years much of the work is done by a local organising committee (LOC) together with a professional conference organiser (PCO). When the event is held in the UK, the Core Committee oversees the work of two sub-committees.

Reporting mechanism

Congress Committee reports to Education Board.
