The Conference (CPC) hosted by the CPA Uganda Branch and the Parliament of Uganda.

The main conference theme is: ‘Adaption, engagement, and evolution of parliaments in a rapidly changing Commonwealth’.

The CPA flagship event brings together over 500 Parliamentarians, parliamentary staff and decision-makers from across the Commonwealth for this unique conference and networking opportunity.

The CPC offers the prospect of the coming together of the CPA’s global membership of Parliamentarians and Parliamentary staff to address the critical issues facing today’s Parliaments.

With the ever-increasing focus on greater scrutiny of Parliamentarians and the overall public trust deficit in Parliaments, the CPA’s annual conference will offer the opportunity for Members to benefit from professional development, supportive learning and the sharing of best practice with colleagues from Commonwealth Parliaments together with the participation of leading international organisations.
