The Public Accounts Committee and the beginning of the modern committee system in Queensland

Join the ASPG-Q in marking 30 years since the establishment of PAC - the Parliamentary Committee of Public Accounts - by the Queensland Parliament in November 1988.

PAC is regarded by many as the foundation of the modern committee system in the parliament and the commencement of a new era of public accountability in Queensland - but it took time before the committee was established, and was a key issue in the split between the National Party and the Liberal Party in 1983.

The ASPG-Q also invites you to enjoy refreshments afterwards to celebrate the end of a busy and eventful 2018.

Please arrive at 6.00pm for a 6.15pm start, followed by refreshments from 7.30pm on the Colonnade overlooking the Speaker’s Green.

This event is free to attend. Please register via our Eventbrite page

Collection management and use of political ephemera in Queensland

22 May 2017

ASPG-Q members and friends delighted in the presentation of Dr Lorann Downer as she shared the research she is undertaking on political ephemera as Adjunct Research Fellow at the State Library of Queensland. It was fascinating to learn about the significance and value of political campaign material – as time goes by this ‘ephemera’ takes on added historical meaning and significance.
