The Accommodation Association has been providing support for all of our members and stakeholders and we have been in active communication with our political leaders on the need for immediate action to support your businesses, employees and guests in light of the COVID-19 outbreak. It is clear now that the conditions we face are the most difficult anyone in our sector has seen and the need for government support and intervention is essential.
While we continue to advocate for direct stimulus support from Government, we have had to make changes to how we delivery one of our primary membership services. As you would be aware, the Accommodation Association has recently increased the number of events that provide meaningful insights and networking opportunities to our members, partners and political leaders.
However, we now must ensure we follow the advice of the Australian Government and health authorities and as such, we will postponing all our in person events until September. We are working with our members and partners to reschedule a wide range of events for later this year and will re-issue all invitations to members once new dates are confirmed
As part of our response to support our members, we do have easy to access information on COVID-19 on our website including factsheets on IR, isolation procedures and information for staff on how to handle guests who wish to isolate. We also been running a series of webinars to keep members informed on topics of interest.
Should you require any assistance through this time, the Accommodation Association team is here to help. You can contact us via phone (1300 304 397) or via email@example.com.
