Organisations around Australia, based on health advice, are introducing new policies on social contact to minimise health risks for their staff. Many Chamber members have advised that they are restricting travel and attendance at events until further notice.
The Chamber’s board of directors met today, and after consultation with ACT Chief Minister Andrew Barr and other stakeholders, has decided to postpone the ACT Chief Minister’s State of the Territory Address to a later date.
We believe this decision reflects the views of our members that it is in the best interest of attendees and the broader population to avoid in-person gatherings.
We will also be postponing our upcoming Business After Business Networking Evening and International Business Connect.
If you’re a registered attendee at one of these events, we’ll be in touch with more information.
We are naturally disappointed that we need to make this decision, however, the safety of our members, staff and the community is our main concern and first responsibility. Like many organisations around Australia, we will be adapting the way we do business and while face-to-face events aren’t being held, our team are busy thinking of new and innovative ways we can keep delivering value to members in the coming months.
