Our AGM will commence at 5:30 pm on Tuesday 19th May and financial members are encouraged to join us at that time so we can deal with formal business before hearing from Eva Cox at 5:45 pm. Non-members are of course welcome to listen in on the AGM which will elect officer bearers and hear a report of activities (most of which are covered on our WA page here).
Eva Cox is the Patron of Australian Fabians. Recently she has led work on a national project for Fabians on Privatisation, the State and COVID-19, the first stage of which has been a survey of members and supporters (see here). Eva has been an academic, a political advisor, consultant, teacher, researcher and welfare advocate over the past decades. She taught research and advocacy and policy at the University of Technology Sydney and is an Adjunct Professor in its Indigenous Research Unit. In 1995 she delivered the ABC Boyer lectures on a Truly Civil Society, which raised the importance of social capital as the trust glue that holds societies together.
