These are uncertain times for us all, no matter where we live.
Taking steps to protect our friends, whānau, loved ones and neighbours now ensures our communities are all better off in the long run.
All of us can make a difference. We need to come together in the way Kiwis have shown so many times before - with caring and kindness.
As a valued member of AAPNZ, we know you’ll be disappointed that our Administrative Professionals Day Celebration, the Regional Gatherings and our Annual Conference / AGM together with your monthly meetings have been postponed or cancelled. The impact of this on our members and partners is substantial and unprecedented. We’re doing everything in our power to bring as much professional development and support remotely as we can to you whilst also having sympathy for the position our employers are facing.
We thank you for your patience as we work through a very complex and fast-changing situation. We expect to have some more information and news around what we can offer remotely and we will be reassessing when we can hold the APD and Conference monthly at the NET Skype meetings with the next review being on 25 April 2020.
We are holding our first virtual “Wednesday Coffee Catch-up” on Wednesday 25 March 2020.
We would welcome any of your ideas around what you would like to be offered remotely. Feel free to head to our social media pages to tell us what else you’d like to see. We’re listening, and we’ll do our very best to deliver it.
If you have a question please contact us and we will get back to you as quickly as possible.
We wish you and your family well and good health. Please look after yourselves.
Vicki Faint on behalf of NET
AAPNZ National President
