Queensland Democrats elect Sue Barrell (centre) as Chapter Chair
Queensland had its state chapter AGM on Sunday, June 25 at the Pig n Whistle in Brisbane.  While only five people attended in person, we had many more vote remotely, and Sue Barrell was elected Chair unanimously.  We spent a couple of hours discussing the parlous state of US governance, and how we can increase both membership and voter participation for the 2018 midterm elections.  Since Queensland, unlike perhaps other states, has significant membership outside the capital city, we also discussed the formation of satellite subchapters, perhaps on the Gold Coast, the Sunshine Coast, and far North Queensland.  I'm sure Sue will have a lot more to say in the coming weeks and months.  
Thanks to all who participated, and stay tuned -- we're energised and ready to go!
