Former Members' Association

On 9 May 2019, an inaugural meeting of the ACT Legislative Assembly's Former Members' Association was held in conjunction with a number of other events to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of self-government in the Territory.

Those present adopted a constitution, and elected Mary Porter AM as president of the association and Louise Littlewood as vice-president. The meeting resolved that the sitting Speaker would hold the position of patron with the Clerk being honorary secretary/treasurer.

If you are a former member of the Assembly and would like to participate in future meetings or events, or to get in touch with the president or vice-president, please contact:
