Commonwealth Budget Review 2017/18
This event offers pointed and deeper analysis distinct from the media spin that typically follows budget night. Each speaker brings a different perspective, shedding light on all the nooks and crannies of a budget that will be aimed at scoring votes in the upcoming election. Each will speak for 10 minutes after which the floor will be opened for a Q&A. It is a members only event. Friends are encouraged to take up membership so they too can attend this event.
