Victorian Campaign update
The Victoria campaign is building momentum! We've been calling local members to talk about volunteering, policies and party registration. You can help by encouraging your Victoria-based friends to sign up as a member, or volunteering to jump on a phone to help out with calls.
Follow Fusion Party Victoria on social media:
Come along to meet other local Fusion members and supporters, and chat about the upcoming state election!
When: Saturday 24th September, 2–5pm
Where: Ellora, 1 Fitzroy St, St Kilda (Google maps)
QLD news and Brisbane meetup
Hello Fusion Queensland,
The Queensland state election is the 26th of October, 2024. Between now and next year would be a good time to decide if you want to run as a candidate for Fusion, so have a think and chat to some of the other previous candidates to find out what it's like. We are discussing an attempt at state registration so now is a great time to get involved with what's going to happen in the next few years!
I want these meetups to rotate around SEQ so as many people as possible have a chance to join. Please get back to me if you would like to organise a carpool.

A message from the President about our AGM
All members will soon receive formal notice of Fusion's upcoming Annual General Meeting.
This is an opportunity to find out what the party has been up to, vote on proposed changes to the association's constitution and my favourite part, vote for the members who will lead the organisation for the next year.
This is Fusion's first AGM since the amalgamation of the founding parties. As such, this will be the first time that all members will have an opportunity to determine who forms the executive committee. All positions other than Branch Representatives are up for grabs.
