Streaming live our first ever SEARCH Members National Forum kicks off tomorrow.

The program covers a wide range of topics and issues of concern to SEARCH and its members.
The speakers and presenters are overwhelmingly drawn from our members who are active around these issues. We extend a very special welcome to our invited Indigenous guest speakers, Jackie Huggins and Thomas Mayor.
Following the Regional Workshops and Online Forums earlier this year, members were invited to submit written contributions and proposals. Up till today, three members who are unable to attend have submitted written views. These can be accessed here and will be distributed in print form to forum participants tomorrow.
The National Forum and the preceding regional workshops and online forums aimed to provide much-needed opportunities for members to discuss current political priorities and the role of SEARCH in the socialist, left and progressive movements.
As soon as possible after the forum, we will distribute a report on the discussions and outcomes, and next steps for drawing up specific proposals for consideration and decision of all members, leading to a more effective SEARCH that engages its members. We will also update members on current projects, including the partnership with Australian Options, the Tribune digitization, and events to mark the Centenary of the Russian Revolution.
We would like to thank all those who have worked hard to help organize the forum, especially our two part-time staff members, Amalina Wallace and Oliver Plunkett, and our voluntary Forum Coordinator, Greg Giles.
We will see those of you who are coming at the Forum and will be in touch with all members soon afterwards.
