ACT Presidents Message - 27 April 2020

Dear ACT Chapter members,

I hope you are all keeping well during the COVID-19 social distancing. In our region the ACT has reported no new cases for some days which is an encouraging sign. For daily updates in Canberra, you can refer to the ACT Government website:
While the disruption caused by the virus has led us all to adapt and 'socially' distance, it is important that we maintain social connection. To that end we have organised to host future ACT Chapter meetings online using Zoom. As this webtool can host up to 49 participants I'd like to extend the invitation to student members. If you employ/know/teach student members, I ask that you encourage them to participate.

Our next scheduled chapter meeting is Thursday 7th May at 4:00pm.

Please use the link below to gain access to the meeting, or alternatively contact to receive a copy of the calendar invitation.
