All ANU students are members of ANU Observer by default. All members are welcome to attend and vote at General Meetings, which are held at least once per semester.
Editors, the news team, and the digital team meet weekly. The Council meets approximately every fortnight. These meetings are confidential in nature and so are open only to Observer officers. You can find the public minutes for these meetings below.
