Business Breakfast:
Connect with your
Community Leaders

Join Stirling Business Association members and guests and have your chance to connect with your elected community leaders. 

SBA is committed to advocating for small business and providing our local business owners with the platform to voice their thoughts, concerns and questions, even during the current health crisis of COVID-19. It's even more important now than ever before!

So be part of this engaging and meaningful conversation and join us online for our relaxed and informal Q&A style event delivered via Zoom. We will be joined by our panelists; Federal MP for Stirling - Vince Connelly, MLA for Scarborough and Opposition Leader - Liza Harvey, MLA for Balcatta - David Michael and City of Stirling Mayor - Mark Irwin who are still very keen to connect with you and answer your questions - we're sure you have many right now. More so than ever before they want to understand your concerns so they can feed the sentiment at ground level back to their respective legislatures.

We'll kick off at 7:30am and the event will conclude by 9am at the latest. So BYO breakfast and we encourage you to grab a takeaway coffee from your local cafe if you can. We want to support our local small businesses where possible.

We look forwarding to welcoming you and hearing the issues that matter most to you.
