Zoom Coffee MorningJoin us on Sunday 10 October 2021 at 10.30am
Club Development DayWe were on track for a face to face Club Development Days. These were scheduled for Cranbourne 14th August, Bairnsdale 21st August and Trafalgar 22nd August. But with the current lockdown, possible extension and what restrictions might be on even if the lockdown is over, it’s become apparent the best way to run these sessions is via zoom. So these physical days are now cancelled and Club Development Day will be run via zoom, on the 29th August.
Links for this session will be sent out as we get closer. All the sessions will be run over one day, and via one link. So if you would like to see information on other roles you can come in and out as you need. We are looking to have 2people as IT help throughout the day. These numbers will be provided as we get closer to the day.
The one session which we cannot run, unfortunately, will be the New member forum. This needs to be a physical session, and we’ll look to run this, physically, when the Covid restrictions allow.
Contact Global Leadership Chairperson Maurice on 0419397508, or by email firstname.lastname@example.org to BOOK.
