CAMPAIGNS

ABC alumni organisers are volunteers – and we’re always looking for more. If you can help, please contact our campaign co-ordinators.

Board appointments

Appointments to the ABC Board must be apolitical and based on merit. The extraordinary events of September 2018 show how important it is to ensure future ABC Boards are independent and that members understand the role and importance of public media.

We’re working to secure a good result from the Senate inquiry into those events. We’ve urged the Government not to appoint a new Chair until that inquiry delivers its report in late March. Contact: Gil Appleton 0414 656 861.

International Broadcasting

Supporters of Australian Broadcasting in Asia and the Pacific are campaigning for restoration of funding to the ABC International Service, following the recent disastrous cuts to Radio Australia and short-wave services to Asia and the Pacific. Contact: Jemima Garrett 0408 163 226

Working with other groups

One of our key goals is to co-ordinate other groups who support public media. Contact: John Cleary 0437 459 353
