Contributing to a Senate Inquiry is much easier than you probably expect, but because it is a formal government process you just have to make sure the t's are crossed and the i's have dots so that your contribution will be accepted.
It doesn’t need to be long — 4 pages is the absolute maximum length, and the shorter the better.
If you want to ask questions or need a bit of confidence to get started come along to this online workshop. You don't have to speak or give your name, we will do an introduction of the five steps, chat about why it's important, and answer any questions.
We will be starting from the Your #notmydebt Story Matters - 5 Steps to making a senate inquiry submission.
We will be available to chat on:
- Tuesday March 14 at 8:30pm (EST)
- Wednesday March 15 at 11:30am (EST)
- Thursday March 16 at 8:30pm (EST)
- Tuesday March 21 at 8:30pm (EST)
