An Australian Republic
With one of our own as head of state

Stephen Dametto - NSW Branch Convenor

Stephen has been a long-time member of the ARM and has been the NSW Convener since November 2009 having previously served on the NSW committee.

Stephen is currently a Detective Superintendent with the Australian Federal Police. He is also a Chartered Accountant and a qualified lawyer and holds qualifications in Management. Stephen is currently completing a PhD in law at the University of NSW. His research will evaluate the effectiveness of international measures to counter terrorism financing.

Stephen is also a director of the Sydney Salon, a non-for-profit organisation which encourages thought leadership through an open and democratic discussion of big ideas.

Australia is a unique and special country. Stephen wants Australia to become a republic because he would like to see his children have the opportunity to be Australia’s head of State, for Australia to be truly self-determining and to allow Australia to flourish to its full potential. He hopes that his current position as NSW Convener goes a small way to achieving this.

He is married with 3 children.
