This special lunch presentation offers ACA members and the wider profession a unique opportunity to hear directly from current MP for Ryan, Elizabeth Watson-Brown in an interview with University of Queensland Senior Lecturer Kelly Greenop. Come along to hear about Elizabeth’s life and career in architecture and her relatively new role as the Greens MP for Ryan in Brisbane’s west. Learn about her current priorities in her portfolios of Infrastructure, Transport and Sustainable Cities, as well as the opportunities and challenges of life in politics.
