Our constitutional definition of ‘Partners’
Article 2 - Definitions
2.8 ‘Partners’ means those persons, bodies or entities identified in Article 15.
In turn, Article 15 states that “the ORADO shall work in a collaborative effort with strategic partners, including but not limited to the following” and presents a list of twelve entities.
Our constitutionally mandated Partners
These comprise the International Olympic Committee (IOC); Governments in the Oceania region; the World Anti-Doping Organisation (WADA); National Olympic Committees (NOCs); National Sporting Organisations/Federations in all member Countries; the Oceania National Olympic Committees (ONOC); National Anti-Doping Organisations (NADOs) in the Oceania region; Athletes; International Federations; the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO); the Pacific Games Council (PGC), and the general public.
Our continuing partnerships foci
To date, our Strategic Foci have centred on WADA, the IOC, ONOC, PGC, the NADOs in Oceania, NOCs in Oceania, and the PGC. By proxy with the PGC and NADOs, our work continues to engage with athletes and the general public.
Our new strategic move to growing our constitutionally mandated partners
Moving forward, and with a suite of strategic programmes, we are developing our constitutionally mandated Partnerships with Governments in the Oceania region and with UNESCO. This is an organisational and programming foci that we are fostering through purposeful programming in Partnerships, Advocacy and Lobby.
