Feedback on the AFPA Dispatch
We’re always interested to hear from our members; if you’d like to share your thoughts on the AFPA Dispatch, we’ve created a short survey here
If you have a few minutes to complete the survey, we’d appreciate it.
My upcoming meeting with the Minister
I will be speaking to Federal Attorney-General Mark Dreyfus next week about the toll policing has on the mental health of members, and how it can contribute to premature deaths.
Some of the issues that will form the backbone of our conversation will be around recent floods, the COVID-19 pandemic, and the 2019/2020 bushfires; the effect these have had on members, and will continue to, cannot be understated. I will be asking for more resources, staff and funding to ensure appropriate (and free) mental health services are made available to all AFPA members.
The AFPA has recently become aware that for the third time (at least), despite court-ordered double-checking, the AFP has yet again managed to miscalculate members’ superannuation payments.
The AFPA does not provide financial advice or calculations, but if there is an error detected, please contact us and we will review your options on a case-by-case basis.
We are actively looking for and engaging suppliers/retailers for discounts for AFPA members. Please read the membership section of this Dispatch for more detail on recent deals we have secured.
If you have an idea for other retailers or suppliers, please let us know at email@example.com
Some areas we are currently looking at on:
- Insurers (travel, car, home and life)
- Mobile phone service providers
- And public transport (thanks JB and Brycey)
Lastly, I know there are a number of members who have been affected personally and/or professionally by recent major events like the floods and pandemic. If you do need some assistance, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or (02) 62851677.
Below you can find a summary of the media appearances I have made over October.
