Housekeeping - Peak Body Report
10 November 2003 at 12:11 pm

Our report last edition on the role of advocacy and the report into Peak Bodies created much interest. For those who would like to follow up on this issue a seminar this week in Sydney may be what you are looking for.

Challenging Advocacy
A forum for NGO’s and Advocates
Thursday November 13 2003
10am to 4:30pm @ UTS
Level 2 Bon Marche Building, Harris St Sydney

Non-government organisations (NGOs) play a critical role in civil society and building social capital. While their importance is recognised there are many forces that appear to challenge their legitimacy and social role.

The CHALLENGING ADVOCACY forum will bring together non-government organisations (NGOs), corporates and government with advocates from various organisations and perspectives to network and debate advocacy issues.

Leading NGO professionals from organisations such as Amnesty International, Social Change Media, Bicycle NSW, Muslim Women Association, and many others will speak on current debates within advocacy and provide practical advice on campaign and communication strategies.

They will engage with government policy makers, media decision-makers, and business and corporate managers – on issues of civic responsibility and the future of advocacy in our democracy.

The Challenging Advocacy forum is an initiative of the Masters of Social Inquiry program at UTS.
