  1. Other Business:
  • Australian Body Art Festival Review. Plenty of positive feedback. A great weekend all done with limited funds. All of the artists were happy with the event. One or two comments suggesting more seating and shade at ABAF – would agree as long as we have funds to do it.
  • Thanks goes to Firefly Solutions for organising such a great event for Cooroy Chamber.
  • Coffee shops and retail happy with the weekend. Visitors to ABAF seemed to visit festival then leave and visit Cooroy business precinct then return to festival.
  • Kurui Update- waiting for QMP to finish design. Aiming to print and distribute this month
  • CCTV update – Danielle will do acquittal this week and apply for the last $15,000+GST of grant
  • Next Chamber Activity Chamber Network night – Business and Community groups 2nd May. Have three possible presenters: Naskam on NBN and security, Tourism Noosa on Noosa Country Drive and Bendigo Bank on their new referral program – could give all of these presenters 5 minutes each at Networking night. Could ask them to sponsor eg $100 each.  Danielle to talk to them about sponsorship.  Once finalized, Andy to promote to members. Tania/Elona to do ring around on available day for them.
