These are unprecedented times, and we hope all of our Members, their families, friends and supporters are safe and in the best of health. While all of our lives have been significantly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, there is no doubt in our minds we’ll get through this together.

We would like to specifically acknowledge and give thanks to all those who put their lives on the line every day in order to provide the rest of us with health care and other essential services. You are heroes in our eyes and have our deepest respect and gratitude. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you!

I’d like to take this opportunity to acknowledge that many of you have had to cancel/re-schedule planned events, and that these decisions have been super-tough on those who have already put in vast amounts of hard work.  However, our number one priority is safeguarding the health and safety of our members, the public, and everyone involved with an event and therefore I would ask that you please follow your country’s advice and help minimise the risk of further spreading this awful disease.

Take care of yourselves, and let’s all do what we can to spread love and kindness in whatever way we can.
