Organization of the Oceania Region of the Clan Buchanan Society

The Clan Buchanan Society, Oceania, was founded by Stephen Buchanan and myself in 2010.  Since then we have been working on governance, information, membership and growing the organisation internationally. We are consulting with the Clan Buchanan Society International (CBSI) executive based in the USA to establish the international framework and develop a leadership network to address clan matters, including the re-establishment of the Chief, via a Commander role.

The Clan Buchanan Society, Oceania, region is arranged into 6 CHAPTERS representing countries, Australian States and Territories as follows:

  • New South Wales/Australian Capital Territory/Norfolk Island
  • Victoria/Tasmania
  • Queensland/Melanesia
  • Western Australia, Christmas and Cocos Islands
  • South Australia, Northern Territory
  • New Zealand,  Polynesia (except Hawaii), and Micronesia.

Melanesia: Papua New Guinea, Fiji, New Caledonia, Solomon Islands, Vanuatu.
Polynesia: French Polynesia (Fr), Pitcairn Islands (UK), Easter Island (Chile) , Samoa, Tonga, Wallis and Futuna (Fr), American Samoa (USA), Cook Islands (NZ), Niue (NZ), Tokelau (NZ), Tuvalu.
Micronesia:  Federated States of Micronesia, Guam (USA), Kiribati,  Marshall Islands, Nauru, Northern Mariana Islands (USA),  Palau, Wake Is (USA).

A chapter is organised by a REGENT, who coordinates clan activities in their areas of responsibility.  Regents can be assisted by coordinators of a DISTRICT.

Steve and I are National Co-Convenors while we establish the groundwork in Oceania.

Steve and Carolyn Buchanan are Co-Convenors (Co-Regents) of NSW/ACT.
Marie Gibson is Convenor (Regent) of Queensland, etc.
Cheryl and Garry Gilbert are Co-Convenors (Co-Regents) of Victoria/Tasmania.
Heather Horseman is Convenor (Regent) of Western Australia, etc..
Chris Buchanan is Convenor (Regent) of South Australia/Northern Territory.

We still need a National Convenor for New Zealand (and Convenors for North and South Islands).

We are seeking help from clan members who are interested in organising chapters or districts.

Please contact me if you are interested in taking on a role or assisting us in any way at [email protected].
