CORONAVIRUS DISEASE 2019 (COVID-19)
INFORMATION FOR WIT MEMBERS
As a member or affiliate of our organisation Women in Technology has your health and safety at the forefront of business activities and as such, we are constantly monitoring the evolving situation in relation to the impact of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19).
We understand and appreciate the effect this situation is having on many of you due to responses to specific profession and industry impacts and direct impacts, especially in relation to meetings and events.
As an organisation, drawing directly on current advice and information provided by both Federal and State government authorities we have made the difficult decision to postpone our March events to be either rescheduled at a later date or to be brought to you via an online alternate mechanism, where appropriate. Direct emails have been sent to confirmed event and programme booked attendees. Further information regarding the next course of action for ticket holders will be communicated as soon as possible and we thank you in advance for your patience as we deal with what is an unprecedented situation.
This is an ever evolving situation and we will update accordingly on our events after March.
For further information, visit the Australian Government Department of Health's COVID-19 alert.
We will continue to update and monitor as further information comes to hand. If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
