Dear AEVA members and friends, In light of recent developments with respect to the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent public health crisis, please note the following: AEVA is advising all branches to cancel any ‘physical member meetings’ they have planned for the remainder of March and April. Consideration should be given to conducting ‘member meetings’ via video link as is already done in some states. The health and safety of our members is of paramount importance and all Branch Chair’s should ensure the AEVA in their region is following government guidelines. As you know the situation is moving rapidly and we are monitoring this situation closely and will communicate any changes to this decision with you as new information arises. If you have any questions, please contact one of the executive, or use the contact form on this site. Cheers Chris …
