    auDA "Consultants"?
    auDA CEO Bonus?

    Who is being paid as a "Consultant" by auDA?
    How much are they being paid each?
    What is their relationship to each other or to the Victorian Liberal Party?
    Where are their public reports on the auDA website of their role and performance?

    How much is auDA spending on PR companies and PR Consultants and has this now been taken out of the Marketing fund... so $4 million is gone?

    Yes
    lets see now, 12mil, now 8mil ! no media newsletter on that one!
    so what happens now? you've signed up your employees on a promise? now its drop from $4mil for 3 years to $8 over 4 years !
    your employees will vote in the changes as predicted which will allow a new nominations committee to replace the board and OHH NO ! surprise, the new board don't think that $8mil is a good idea !

    GOODBYE SUPPLY, its all over

    Agree, I suspect we’ll see it drop either to zero or $4 million after the AGM vote. Easy to blame it on “the new board”.

    There is no way auDA would want to pay out any of this.
