ESA AGM and Dinner 2018

The Society’s Annual General Meeting will be convened at 5:30 pm (for a 5:45 pm start) on Wednesday 29th of August 2018 at the Rambla on the Swan Restaurant, 39/85 South Perth Esplanade, South Perth.

The Rambla is a lovely venue in a great location.  The AGM will be followed by drinks, from 6:30 pm, and dinner, from 7:00 pm.  Registration for the dinner is now open.

The event will feature an after-dinner presentation by Emeritus Professor Margaret Nowak AM on her journey as an economist and offer some observations about contemporary trends.  Margaret initially spent over six years in the Research Department of the Reserve Bank in Sydney where she met Austin Holmes who was somewhat of a mentor to younger RBA economists.  Subsequently, she moved on to the School of Economics & Finance at Curtin University and became the inaugural Director of the Curtin Graduate School of Business.  She has a Bachelor and Masters Degrees in Economics from Sydney University and a PhD from Murdoch University.  Margaret’s research interests have focused on labour markets with specific interests relating to labour markets and women, corporate governance and corporate social responsibility.  Margaret has been active in the WA Branch since the 1980s, is a past President of the Economics Society of WA and was awarded the Austin Holmes Award in 2008.  More recently, Margaret became a Member of the Order of Australia as part of this year’s Queen’s Birthday Honours for significant service to education in the disciplines of business studies and economics, and to community and charitable organisations.
