A public forum is to be conducted Q&A style at the Byron Bay Community Centre on Saturday January 26 from 6 until 8pm.
The forum was the brainchild of Echonetdaily comedian, commentator and community advocate Mandy Nolan. The moderator will be former ABC journalist Mick O’Regan.
The community is invited to partake in a robust conversation on the challenges that face Byron Bay and how we are going to address these and create a sustainable vision for all stakeholders as we move into the future.
As well as Nolan herself, panel members will include Jan Barham – NSW Legislative Council, Don Page – Ballina MP and NSW minister for local government, Byron Shire mayor Simon Richardson, Paul Waters – president Byron United chamber of commerce and vice-president of Byron Bay Liquor Accord, Cameron Arnold – chairman of VIA Byron and member of Byron Shire Council Tourism Advisory Committee (TAC), Tom Mooney – licensee and member of the Byron Bay Liquor Accord
Questions will be accepted from the audience ahead of time and selected for presentation on the night.
The forum is sponsored by The Byron Shire Echo and those interested in attending and having their ideas or questions presented should email [email protected] before Wednesday January 23.
