**ON HOLD *** Sharing Stories about Strange Birds Is Good For Business
**** 13/03/2020 Event Postponed *****
The Australian Government has this afternoon advised that gatherings of more than 500 people are to be cancelled from Monday 16 March 2020 in response to COVID-19.
Following this advice, I have considered the implications for WNA and our members, and have taken the decision to cancel all WNA events for the rest of March. I believe this is the right decision to take at this time.
The health and welfare of WNA members and guests, and the broader community is paramount.
Any decisions about April events will be made based on the latest advice of health officials.
I will keep you informed.
In the meantime, I would encourage you to continue to collaborate and share your positive insights with fellow members through WNA’s social media channels and website.
We will be posting information about our Business Insight sessions, and other online events. Thank you for your continued support, patience and understanding as we work though this unprecedented situation.
