State Election 2018: Member Activities, Information & Updates

The 2018 State Election has been called for 3 March and as our valued members, TasCOSS will be by your side throughout helping to interpret the policy announcements, highlighting where our sector and Tasmanians are affected and holding our potential parliamentary representatives to account.

Each Monday we will provide you with a weekly update on the announcements so far, and bringing you daily website updates on the events of the day.  So watch this space as events and analysis unfold.

Leader Forums
We’ve worked with LGAT, TCCI and other sector peaks to lock in exclusive 60-minute sessions with each of the party leaders on the morning of 23 February. This will be a Member-only, limited-ticket event – stay tuned for details.

Electorate Candidate Forums
We’ve also partnered with LGAT and the TCCI to plan candidate forums in each electorate during the week of 12 February. These hour-long events will give you a chance to drop by and hear what each of your local candidates stands for in the areas of interest to you.

Save the dates below and we’ll let you know more details next week:
Braddon 12 February
Bass 13 February

Lyons 14 February

In their own words
TasCOSS will publish a 500-word statement from each of the party leaders in the last 3 weeks of the campaign. This statement will be sent to those of you on our Member mailing list.

Weekly updates
We’ll also send out member election updates every week and more as necessary that will include the latest news and notify you of updates to online resources. Don’t miss out, if you work for a TasCOSS Member organisation, make sure you’re subscribed now.
