We also understand you are all dealing with a multitude of challenges within your businesses and also at home, to respond to this period of disruption with care and consideration.

As your professional body, we also wish to ensure the safety, health and wellbeing of our members, candidates and people so we are moving as quickly as we can to pivot to online or virtual member support and learning or in some cases to postpone or cancel existing face to face ceremonies and events.

Please be assured that as your professional body we will balance the community need for social distancing with the designation's imperative to learn, connect, be informed and advocate for better policy and outcomes with governments and regulators to navigate through and past this event.
