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.

If you have any questions, comments, ideas or thoughts please email office@ausom.net.au
