Following the advice from the Australian Chief Medical Officer Brendan Murphy, on the COVID-19 Virus and large gatherings of people, the Governance Committee for the National Volunteering Conference 2020 met this afternoon Friday 13 March 2020.
Based on this advice and with careful consideration, we regret to advise that the National Volunteering Conference 2020 will not be going ahead as planned next week (18 – 20 March 2020).
We will endeavour to update all delegates, sponsors and stakeholders with information as it comes to hand through the Conference website https://volunteering2020.org from Monday.
We thank you in advance for your understanding.
Michelle Ewington Chair, Volunteering Australia Board
David Morrison Chair, Volunteering WA Board
