Next Superannuants meeting Monday 29th November


The next Adelaide meeting of the Association is at 1:00 pm on 29 November, at Mead Hall, Flinders Street Baptist Church, 65 Flinders Street.

Former Member of the Legislative Council Mark Parnell will present “A View from the Cross-bench”.

Since retiring, Mark has been working on a range of materials and stories which go to the question of how things “really work” in Parliament, and thinking about how non-profit community groups can be helped to level the playing field a bit. Big business has no shortage of paid lobbyists and government relations consultants, but in Mark’s experience the community sector often has very little idea how to effectively engage with MPs. Many of us are familiar with the view from inside the public service, but what about the view from outside?
