Hi AWSN members,
Wer would like to take this opportunity to give you an update on some of the important activities going on, often behind the scenes, for our members and sponsors.
Unfortunately, any update at the moment can’t help but start with COVID-19 and how we are adapting to this ever-changing situation. We hope you and your loved ones are staying safe and well and that you are finding the right balance between isolation, protection and professional activities. If you are needing help, please reach out to your networks. This time more than any other, it is okay to say “Ï need help”.
As many of you know we moved our events online at the start of the Government restrictions back in March and have been able to deliver some fantastic professional learning over the past couple of months. If you missed any of these sessions, they are now available on our YouTube channel. Please hit subscribe so you won’t miss any future recordings as well.
We would like to return to face to face meetings as soon as practicable, but we feel it is not appropriate just yet. Not only because of the unfolding situation in Victoria (from where I am writing this on day one of homeschooling and facing the prospect of a harder lockdown) but because the situation is very different in each state. Rest assured our chapter leads are monitoring what is right for their state and as a Board we will continue to review our appetite for in person events.
On a much happier note, we are very pleased to announce that Jacqui Loustau, our Founder, has accepted the role of Executive Manager for AWSN. We look forward to working with Jacqui to help shape the future for AWSN, our members and sponsors.
