  • Influence the policies of Labor in government;
  • Have your ideas brought before the entire ALP;
  • Participate actively in election campaigns;
  • Meet other people with a commitment to social justice;
  • Stand in pre-selection ballots as a candidate for public office;
  • Meet ALP parliamentary representatives; and
  • Find out the inside news on the labour movement and Labor in government.
  • You may also stand for positions on the branch executive, as a delegate to state and national conferences, and for various state and national committees, including policy committees.
