Central Council


The Economic Society of Australian Inc. is a non-profit organisation that is committed to its objectives which include encouraging the study of economics and its application in Australia, encouraging informed public debate of economic and related questions and conducting seminars, symposia, conferences and other meetings to advance the objectives of ESA Central Council.

In meeting these objectives, ESA Central Council receives information from and about members and those who register for its events or enter information on ESA Central Council's website. This information may include a person’s business address and telephone number, personal address and telephone number, post office box details, information about professional interests and qualifications, credit card and transactional information, date of birth and other information of a personal nature such as catering preferences. 

ESA Central Council may use contact information to inform members, former members and those who have registered for events about Society functions and events.  You may advise us when you register for an event that you do not wish to be informed about future events. If you ask ESA Central Council to cease contacting you we will do so. 

ESA Central Council does not sell mailing lists or contact details to other organisations.

We may make audio and video recordings of our events. Please let us know before you attend an event if you do not wish to be identifiable in recordings which we may make available on our website or in other ways.

In the course of meeting our objectives, we may provide information we hold about you to contractors and suppliers (such as event organisers).  If we do so, we will take reasonable steps to ensure that these contractors and suppliers are subject to an appropriate privacy policy. If we provide information about you to overseas entities (such as to an overseas company assisting in publishing a journal for ESA Central Council's members) we will take reasonable steps to ensure that the information will be subject to appropriate data protection or privacy laws and to ensure there are contractual obligations which protect information about you.
