Convention

GCA Convention

Every two years (in the odd years) the GCA holds a Convention at a different location in Australia.
The Convention runs for about 5 days and includes the GCA AGM for that year.
The Convention provides an opportunity for members of affiliated clubs and their friends and families to enjoy socialising and visiting many interesting attractions at the location.
Affiliated clubs can tender to organise a Convention and will receive complete support from the GCA.
