Dear Clubs and Members,
With the COVID-19 virus being declared a global pandemic, we wanted to share some important information about the steps we’re taking to support you during these uncertain times. Our priority is the safety and well being of our members and the general public. We’re closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation and, following the advice of the government authorities, we will respond to any updated recommendations.
Like many organisations, the impact of COVID-19, has caused cancellation or postponement of many of our meetings and this may cause some communication delays.
Please note, our unofficial office at Clever Products in Seven Hills will be temporarily closed to the public from Monday 23 March 2020 until further notice to ensure the safety of our members and the Clever staff.
Quarterly Meeting May 2020
As a result of government restrictions and health authority advice our quarterly meeting in Coffs Harbour will not be held in person. We encourage our members to visit our many Facebook pages to keep updated.
EDIT: May Quartery is a ZOOM meeting 16th at 8.30am email email@example.com for the links.
Club Access to ZOOM
Clubs can use the Zoom account to run their own meetings. As mentioned above it is best for about 10 attendees so it’s ideal for committee meetings or for small club meetings. We will set up meetings for any club that makes a request. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with at least 7 days’ notice. Follow up with email@example.com if you have any problems.
EDIT: Some clubs have run successful meetings for 30 plus attendees. If everyone follows the rules it works really well - Give it a go!
Please be aware that the Government has declared that we must stay in our own suburbs, this is required to slow the rate of transmission. Because of this we ask that clubs cancel any trips or events. There are insurance implications to be considered. If the clubs hold an event contrary to the Government guidelines our insurer can void any claims made for that event.
There are many events around the country that have already been cancelled and many that will likely be cancelled soon. For details of those events please contact the event organiser directly to obtain updates.
Please remember to check in on your club members that live alone or are more vulnerable than others to this virus. A phone call to make sure they are safe and maybe drop in a loaf of bread if required.
Please look after each other and take care.
