Significant decisions at the 50th Anniversary AGM

A well attended Annual General Meeting elected new executive and committee; endorsed strong policies on global surveillance, whistle-blowers and asylum seekers and conferred honorary life membership on Cameron Murphy.

The NSW Council for Civil Liberties held its AGM on Wednesday 23 October, and a number of significant decisions were made:

  • A new executive and committee were elected, following a very strong field of nominations, requiring a ballot in key positions.
  • The Committee endorsed strong policies around current, critical civil liberties issues, including asylum seekers, global surveillance and whistleblowers. The policy document is contained below.
  • Life membership was conferred on our longest serviing President, Cameron Murphy. See page 5 of the below document for the full resolution.
