Queensland State Convention

We are excited to invite you to this year's Queensland State Convention.

Momentum is building, the quality of our candidates and recognition of Family First is increasing here and elsewhere around the country; thanks in no small part from our common sense approach to policy, lead by our Federal Chairman and Senator for South Australia.
