Seminar Outline

This half-day seminar will provide the most up to date and practical information on the reform and modernisation of Queensland’s parliamentary committee system and its impacts on public sector officers. The structure and purpose of the new portfolio-based committees will be outlined, together with an overview of the role of parliamentary committees.

You will learn about the committee inquiry process and your role as public servants in providing information to parliamentary committees.

Public servants are increasingly required to appear before and provide evidence to parliamentary committees as part of committee examinations of Bills. For example, in 2019, more than 537 public servants appeared before parliamentary committees.

If you are likely to be called upon to prepare a submission for a parliamentary committee or are called upon to appear before, or support another officer appearing before a committee, this seminar is for you.

Keynote speakers include the Clerk of the Queensland Parliament, the Deputy Clerk and senior committee office staff.

Morning Tea will be provided.
