Membership renewal time is upon us again, and due to popular demand we have set up this page for those who wish to pay by credit card through our website, or via PayPal. Unfortunately the Melbourne Forum are not in the position to absorb the $20.00 fee per membership, therefore, any fees that are being paid through this portal will be increased by this amount. Some members are happy with this in order to get more frequesnt flyer points!
The Melbourne Forum ran a record number of 73 events in 2016 across the arts, politics, culture and Melbourne life genres – from our inaugural series of intimate Melbourne Stories and the Former Premiers’ series, through to signature events with David Marr, Ahmed Fahour, Prof Rhonda Galbally AO and Andrew Denton. A particular highlight this year was Brain Research: The New Frontier with Professor Geoffrey A Donnan AO. It is not just the guest conversation leader or the topic that makes a conversation interesting; it is also the different views amongst our peers.
2017 is looking to be a similarly high calibre year with Saul Eslake kicking off our economic series, while Emeritus Professor David Penington AC, Dr Clayton Thomas, the Hon Jeff Kennett AC, Dr Meredith Doig and Kon Karapanagiotidis OAM have confirmed their dates to present and generate thought provoking conversations.
We will also be carefully following the politics of President Elect Trump and the implication for Australia throughout the year as well, and lining up informed conversation leaders such as Andrew Peacock to discuss these issues.
We look forward to sharing much more with you throughout 2017!
