A key activity of PARBICA is its General Conference. The conference provides a unique opportunity to make or renew professional contacts with other archivists who usually work in isolation. Delegates discuss common problems and explore possible solutions in small groups and plenary sessions. The focus is on drawing up recommendations and guidelines for use by archivists as well as for in-country training of archives and records management staff.

Following its inaugural meeting in Suva in 1981, PARBICA has held conferences every two years.
