Member Activities

Fellow Alumni Members

It seems a long time since our successful Alumni function in November last year.  What an enjoyable evening it was!  At that event and at previous Board meetings we discussed organising some activities to bring past and present colleagues together more often.

To kick this off we are arranging a couple of visits to the Museum of Australian Democracy at Old Parliament House.

New Exhibitions and lunch

There are a number of current exhibitions including:

·         Behind the Lines – The year’s best political cartoons from 2014
·         Menzies – by John Howard.

The Museum also offers a 45 minute tour of the Building.  Some of you could run this tour!  Full details are available on the website

We would follow this with lunch either at the OPH Café or other local café.

Date:  Saturday 30 May
Time: 10 am
RSVP: by 16 May
