Coolum Business and Tourism are holding their own forum specifically for the local business community. All three Division 9 candidates have accepted the invitation to answer questions about how they can represent their business community. The event is open to the general public, however, the questions will be drawn from Coolum Business and Tourism members, who have the chance to submit questions prior to the event. After the forum there will be an opportunity to network with other local business people and the candidates.

Tickets can be booked through and cost $16.50 for members, and $22.00 for non-members. The event will be held 6pm Wednesday 16 March at the Coolum/Peregian RSL 1906 David Low Way, Coolum beach.
