The Australasian Study of Parliament Group (ASPG) is a politically non-partisan body which was established in 1978 to encourage and stimulate research, writing, teaching and discussion about parliamentary institutions, particularly those in Australasia and the South Pacific. The ASPG has Chapters in all States and Territories of Australia and in New Zealand.
Membership consists of parliamentarians, parliamentary officers, academics, teachers, journalists, students and other interested individuals.
The Australasian Parliamentary Review is the ASPG's official journal and is published twice a year.
The ASPG holds an Annual Conference hosted by the Australasian parliaments on a rotational basis.
Next year's Annual Conference is being hosted by the Queensland Parliament from 18 to 20 July 2018, with the theme of 'Trust in Parliament in a post-truth world'.
The Annual General Meeting of the NSW Chapter of the ASPG took place on Thursday 30 November 2017 at 1.30 pm in the Jubilee Room, Parliament House.
The main purposes of the meetings are to elect members to the NSW Chapter's Executive Committee and to discuss the Chapter's activities for the current and coming years.
