From the President
Tax time already! Have you considered the $30,000 instant asset write-off which was extended to 30 June 2020? Check out the ATO’s website to see further information or ask your accountant or tax agent, but better be quick!
The Sustainable Futures expo that the Chamber hosted on Saturday was a success with 82% of the feedback received rated the expo as a 4 and 5-star event. As a volunteer organisation, we could not be happier with that outcome. Congratulations to Marta Levay who won the $500 to spend on one or more of the exhibitors. She was very excited and couldn’t wait to sit down and write out her shopping list.
Did you know that July has a theme? It’s “Plastic Free July”. We think this is a very important topic especially with all the media around how it is affecting our sea life not to mention how it is showing up in our foods. We have secured Ros Potter who is a Sustainability Project Officer for the Sunshine Coast Council to do a presentation on how small businesses can find solutions to manage plastic waste. She would like to hear from us about what are our concerns and workshop them with us. She will even touch on the subject of the new Waste Levy that will impact on small business. While this is not her area of expertise, she does have some information she can share.
We look forward to you joining us for breakfast at Maleny Food Co. Booking details are below.
For the month of July, we have a new promotion that will require the Participant to take a photo of themselves in front of a store, or in the store and post on our Facebook Page with the hashtag #ILOVEMALENY.
The selected winner will receive a $500 debit card.
