Community Cabinet

Community Cabinet gives you a chance to meet with Ministers, Assistant Ministers or Directors-General.

Everyone is welcome to meet formally with ministers through pre-booked formal meetings, previously known as formal deputations.

The last Community Cabinet was in Townsville on Sunday 29 march.

Details on how to request a formal meeting will be provided when the next Community Cabinet is announced.

For further information contact the Community Cabinet Coordinator:

Make the most of your formal deputation

Requesting a deputation

Clearly print:

  • your issues on the request form, giving as much detail as possible.
  • the name(s) of everyone who will attend (for name labels).

Attending a formal deputation

  • Arrive at least 30 minutes before the scheduled time.
  • Register at the registration desk at the entrance—collect and wear your name tag.
  • Wait in the waiting area—the marshalling officer will look for you here to take you to meet the minister(s).
  • If possible, appoint 1 person as a spokesperson.
  • It's helpful to prepare dot points about the issues you wish to raise.
  • Outline the actions you seek within the first 5 minutes.
  • Leave additional paperwork with the minister(s) if needed.
