For the thirteenth time since the referendum Australians for Constitutional Monarchy is delighted to offer Members another National Conference.  In fact ACM is the only organisation on this issue, monarchist or republican, to have done so.

Recently writing in Spectator Australia, Peter Coleman, the author, editor, journalist, State and Federal politician and former Leader of Her Majesty’s Loyal New South Wales Opposition, said someone should write a history of Australians for Constitutional Monarchy.  He described ACM as “a remarkable movement”.

This is an especially exciting year, being the Diamond Jubilee of Her Majesty and only the second to be celebrated by our monarchy.

In a book to honour her 80th birthday, with a foreword by Tony Abbott, ACM declared that the Queen had given impeccable service in an indispensable office.  Even those opposed to the Crown now admit that Her Majesty’s performance in her many duties has been more than anyone could have ever expected.

So we are pleased that to have so effectively campaigned and persuaded the ABC to reverse its extraordinary decision not to broadcast the central events of the Diamond Jubilee, but to show an old American comedy about a hairdresser who seduces his female clients.

It was the willingness of our supporters to endorse our petition, and the rigorous media campaign which we conducted, which forced the ABC to relent so quickly.  This enabled large numbers of our fellow Australians to see and to join in those celebrations.

At this year’s conference Members will have the opportunity to not only review the year, but to be involved in the decisions which must be taken about the future.  This will be at a meeting of ACM’s Council of Supporters of Constitutional Monarchy.

The centrepiece of the conference will be the keynote address by Sophie Mirabella, MP.  If the polls are correct, her subject, “The symbols of monarchy under an Abbott government”, will give us an exciting insight into the future relationship of the Australian government with the Crown.

ACM has always avoided being a Sydney centric organisation and accordingly our National Conferences have been held across our great land.  This year the conference will be held in Australia’s largest inland city, Wagga Wagga.  We do look forward to welcoming you there.
