Annual Conference

In September 2010, the third GMCN member annual conference was held in Sydney, Australia, co-sponsored by the Australian Federal Police. This year's two and a half day conference raised the bar of performance and delivery to a new and higher level due to the great attendance by 12 member countries from around the world, Albania and New Zealand as two future members. At the conclusion of the conference a strategy establishing key priorities was developed, which will strengthen the network and build awareness on the risk and complexity of missing children issues.

  • Expanding GMCN membership in Asia and Latin America;
  • Conducting and publishing research to gain a better understanding of the phenomenon of missing and abducted children;
  • Strengthening ICMEC's support on the local level to build awareness in individual countries on the issue of missing and abducted children; and
  • Developing new partnerships with industry to support the resources and technology tools needed by all GMCN members

3rd Annual GMCN Conference
Australia (September 2010)

In September 2012, the fourth GMCN member annual conference was held in Brasilia, Brazil, co-sponsored by the Motorola Solutions Foundation and the Ministry of Social Development and Income Transfer of the Federal District of Brasilia (SEDEST). This year's two and a half day conference started with a joint session with representatives from across Brazil and 14 GMCN members sharing practices and policies related to missing and abducted children issues. There were many discussions during the conference especially about the difficulty of finding a common definition of what is considered a "missing child". At the conclusion of the event a four member Advisory Board was established for the network to assist in its growth and development in the coming years. For the first year the Advisory Board will be coordinated by Argentina, Australia, Belgium and the United Kingdom.
