Australia Chair to attend the Democrats Abroad Annual General Meeting, 25-27 May, Tokyo, Japan!

I am pleased to say that I will be attending the Annual General Meeting (AGM) of Democrats Abroad (Democratic Party Committee Abroad, DPCA) in Tokyo, Japan from Friday 25th May to Sunday, 27th May!

It is rare that a country within the Asia-Pacific region gets to host the AGM and it is with great pleasure that I will attend and represent Australia in person.

Here are some of the resolutions and charter amendments I plan to support;

  • the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) resolution promoting women’s rights and legal protection of equity under law,
  • the campaign for Residency-Based Taxation (RBT) as taxation is always an issue affecting the majority of our members,
  • The promotion of fair representation of unpledged (Super) Delegates that they cast their vote in proportional accordance to their State’s popular vote, and
  • Also revising the allocation of votes with DA (DPCA) so that more members can participate in voting at an international DA level

I welcome any DA Australia member to join this conference via WebEx Teleconferencing, a donation is highly encouraged!
