ALUCA’s Board sent the below communications to all members and partners on March 17th and 18th. Please note that ALUCA’s Award night nominations has now been pushed out to July 31st and the night itself postponed to October 22nd. In addition we have since sent communications that the biennial conference has also been moved to March, 2021.
We apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused but feel this was in the best interest for all involved.
For those who may have missed the member email, you can read this below:
Due to the rapid, unfolding escalation of the current outbreak and spread of COVID-19, ALUCA’s Board has made the decision to cancel all face to face events until the end of June 2020. Please note that this is a provisional date that may need to be extended pending the situation at that time. We will be monitoring and constantly reviewing this.
Our members, volunteers, sponsors, staff and communities we work in are our top priority and we feel this is the right and most responsible decision given the evolving public health risks and the need to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.
This means that for now:
- All ALUCA events until June 30, 2020 will be held virtually/online or postponed
- All ALUCA volunteer meetings to be online/virtual
- No ALUCA travel
- We will plan for events beyond June 2020 with due caution including the ALUCA 2020 conference
- A program of national digital events is currently being designed
Please be assured that ALUCA remains fully operational during this time. We have a robust IT infrastructure in place to ensure that we can work remotely, support members and provide a national program of events online.
Minimising disruption to our members and partners is a high priority for us, including the health and well-being of all. We know this is a disruptive time, and we are here to help and support you. If you have any concerns or questions, please don’t hesitate to call or email us.
