I’m writing to update you on the FTA response to the growing COVID-19 threat. Given the amount of information you are already receiving, I will keep this brief.
From a resource perspective, we are very small, but we are now working separately to each other, while maintaining member servicing. While this is important for the well being of the team, it is vital that we play our part in restricting the spread of the virus through our communities, and therefore to those most vulnerable people. This is something we feel very strongly about and believe everyone should be undertaking where possible.
For our members and Treasury community, we are working hard to ensure ongoing value and a continuing viable business. To that end we are
- Not holding any face to face meetings or functions from March 16 until May 31 unless advised by authorities that it has become safe to do so. We will further advise any addition to this.
- Working hard on delivering an increased online CPD program via increased numbers of webinars and content sharing
- Exploring ways to deliver other educational programs in a virtual or online environment
- Finalising improvements to our website including a communications forum to facilitate online networking and discussion
On behalf of the Board, I thank you all for your ongoing support, and while we consider these steps to be the only option for our wider community, we do apologise for any disruption this may cause.
If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Stay safe, take care of each other – we look forward to resuming normal programs as soon as possible.
