Another way in which the ABS sought the views of Australians was to bring together panels of experts from across the business, community, research and government sectors. Such experts, with wide, practical experience in representing and achieving positive outcomes for the Australian public, were seen to be in a strong position to speak for the public. Expert workshops were held to provide a mechanism for distilling the consultation feedback relatively efficiently. The panels and workshops provided an environment in which abstract and wide ranging ideas could be discussed productively.

This chapter outlines the roles and contributions of the Topic Advisory Panels (TAPs). It also looks at the outcomes of the MAP forum, held in November 2011. This forum brought together all TAP and Expert Reference Group (ERG) members, as well as a range of other noted experts and commentators, to share perspectives on how best to articulate aspirations for national progress and to help consolidate the views presented in Section 2 of this report.
