Assembly: 15th October 2008 - Churchill
The regional sitting of the 56th Parliament took place on Wednesday 15 October 2008 at the Monash University Gippsland campus, Northways Road, Churchill. The Sitting was conducted in the newly-constructed Auditorium (Building 3E).
In 2008 Monash University celebrated the 50th anniversary of the Parliament of Victoria passing the legislation to establish the University. It was fitting that the Legislative Assembly held its regional sitting at Monash’s Gippsland Campus during this jubilee year. The University’s association with Sir John Monash however has an even longer lineage - 80 years – when, as the first chairman of the State Electricity Commission of Victoria, Monash established its operations in the Latrobe Valley. In 2008 the campus celebrated its history with the opening of a new Medical School and the new Auditorium which hosted the Legislative Assembly.
