On Tuesday 14 April, the SGLBA is hosting a community enagement forum with guest speaker Donna Adney, Superintendent Commander at Surry Hills LAC.

This is a must-be-at event for gay and lesbian businesspeople who are concerned about the current economic climate, the condition of Oxford St businesses and safety on the strip.  This is your opportunity to ask those questions about Surry Hills or GLBT issues and ask the Boss Cat what the police are doing about them.

The sumptuous three-course dinner, including question and answer time, will be held at Slide at 6.30pm for 7pm.  To book your ticket visit moshtix.com.au/event.aspx?id=26443 or phone Slide directly on 8915 1899.  The event opens at 6:30 for a 7pm start.

Cocktail party for new members
To welcome new members to the SGLBA, we are holding a new members cocktail function on Wednesday 29 April, 6pm-9pm, at the Chifley Hotel at Potts Point.

The Chifley is a great meeting space with an open air deck overlooking the vibrant junction of Kings Cross.

We are sending out invitations shortly to all those members who have joined the SGLBA in the last 12 months. It is a free event and a great way to meet each other and the Board, and to network.
