PICSA was created several years later, as a result of the Pacific Islands Communities in South Australia uniting together to provide assistance to the people of Vanuatu, who were impacted by the devastation of Cyclone PAM in March 2016. During this initiative many communities could see the potential of a united pacific islands approach, and from that date the Pacific Island Community representative body was redeveloped.
PICSA’s vision is to build a ‘thriving, vibrant and harmonious Pacific Islands community of South Australia. It is underpinned by its mission statement, which is ‘to unite, equip and empower its community members to grow and develop to be prosperous and become successful communities that fully participate as Australians’
PICSA has worked hard over the last three years in developing its capacity to build a sound vibrant organisation. PICSA has approximately 24 affiliated organisations from cultural, religious, media, sports and academic. PICSA has become an integral part of the Pacific Islands community inclusive of the wider South Australian community.
I join a team of enthusiastic, committed and passionate individuals on the executive Management board, who bring with them a diverse range of skills and experience.
I am highly optimistic and excited with the opportunities that are evolving for the Pacific Islands communities in South Australia.
PICSA is continuing to grow from strength to strength, as a result of the ongoing support and assistance from sponsors, member organisations, affiliates, and of course a brilliant team of highly skilled and experienced individuals who make up the management.
With your support, I look forward to a brighter and prosperous future.
Pacific Islands Council of South Australia
