Hi All

As you are no doubt aware we now have a new ‘communally transmitted’ case of the virus and it is simply too soon to tell if this is going to turn into a cluster.

Under the circumstances, CoM has determined that the risks far outweigh the rewards and we are cancelling the venue booking.

Fortunately, we are well prepared with our online format to deliver a full meeting experience.

Apologies for the short notice and any inconvenience incurred.

We look forward to seeing you all on Zoom on the day 🙂

AUSOM — The way Forward

During these uncertain times, it is important to remain connected with members as we adapt to the new environment for AUSOM. We look forward to resuming normal operations, but until then, will use innovative ways using technology to support our activities.

Due to the current COVID-19 circumstances, all face-to-face meetings are cancelled until further notice.

The Committee of Management had its first meeting using an online video-conference last week, and last Saturday conducted a restricted and successful trial of running a Main Meeting online. Some Special Interest Groups have also been trialled independently online.

Zoom video-conferencing has now been adopted as our primary platform for conducting AUSOM business online. We are aware that not all members may feel confident and proficient in using this new technology; however, plans are underway to provide clear guidance and training to support them to participate fully. More details about this training will be provided direct to members shortly.

AUSOM’s Annual General Meeting will be held online on Saturday 2 May 2020.

Our regular MailChimp bulletins and website updates will continue to help members stay connected and up-to-date.

AUSOM next meeting

AUSOM meets next Saturday (14th March) at NewHope Baptist Centre.

We have been advised that the food offered at the café will be limited.

Last time NewHope needed to reduce the variety of food, they were offering scones, soup with a bread roll, mixed sandwiches, all-day tea and coffee and espresso. AUSOM can only guess that it might be similar on Saturday.


It just takes one small step!

That is to come the R&O group Wednesday 11th March at 10 am. Begin to create music or draw and paint using your iPad or iPhone.

If you believe playing Solitaire or doing jigsaw puzzles is fun after Wednesday you will be able to add something creative to your list of ‘super fun’ activities.
