We at QRRRWN are all about connection, and we wish to ensure that all our members can meet in person. We do not want to present our Conference as an online event and have you still separated and isolated.
We want to celebrate all that we are, and that is connected, inspiring women who support each other in development, confidence and action.
We have listened to your concerns, and they are ours as well. We wish to ensure that all our members are able to join us and feel safe when we do get together, even if that means postponing our celebrations.
We will be in touch with each of you who have bought tickets or booked stalls to give you the choice, moving forward, of a refund or holding your place, for when we do meet.
We are still working out how best to host our Women in RRR Awards this year and will be in touch once the details are set in motion. We have postponed the closing of the applications until the end of the month so if you haven’t applied or nominated someone there is still time. https://www.qrrrwn.org.au/awards-2021/
