There are many reasons to join Australians for Constitutional Monarchy. Among these are the following.

 ACM:

  • is Australia’s largest constitutional monarchist organisation
  • has been audited in each and every year since its inception in 1993
  • has consistently presented the winning arguments for the retention of the Crown & the flag
  • called the largest demonstration ever held on this issue when over 20,000 protested against the expulsion of the NSW Governor from Government House
  • continued the fight relentlessly until the Governor was returned
  • led a united front of all monarchist groups at the 1998 Constitutional Convention (ACM received 72% of the monarchist vote)
  • built up a support base of over 55,000 across Australia to fight the referendum on the ground
  • established from Sydney a network of full-time directors and offices in Perth, Adelaide, Brisbane, Canberra, Melbourne and Hobart to coordinate the referendum campaign in each of the states and the ACT
  • drafted the winning No Case in the official Yes/No booklet sent to every voter
  • devised the winning slogans for the campaign, all based on sound legal and constitutional argument
  • provided advertising additional to that of the funded No Case
  • because of the large vote gained in the Convention election, was awarded eight of the ten seats of the Vote No Committee to administer the $7.5 million grant for referendum advertising (the other two seats went to republicans opposed to the Keating-Turnbull republic)
  • was the engine room for the winning No case in the 1999 referendum, meeting daily to secure victory
  • has led the constitutional monarchist movement since, being the only organisation— monarchist or republican— to hold a national conference in every year since the referendum, and to hold them in different cities across the nation.
