Citizen conversations series: agenda

The ACMA is conducting the Contemporary community safeguards inquiry into the core principles that should guide the content of broadcasting codes of practice.

To help inform this inquiry, the ACMA will be hosting a series of citizen conversations and we would be delighted if you could attend one or more of the forums.

The themes for the public forums are classification, decency, accuracy, fairness, advertising and privacy. There is also a workshop for broadcasters on the handling of complaints under the codes of practice.

Each forum will feature contributions from subject matter experts, academics, practitioners and other industry stakeholders.

The forums are free but registration is essential. Only a limited number of places are available, so register now. You will be advised of the outcome of your registration within five business days.

All the forums will be held at the ACMA’s Sydney office in Pyrmont.
