CHIA NSW has been monitoring the extraordinary challenges posed by the COVID-19 virus and its potential impact on the Community Housing 2020 conference on 31 March and 1 April 2020, and the NSW Aboriginal Housing caucus on 2 April 2020.
Whilst the conference and caucus are an important exchange for our sector and for CHIA NSW itself, the safety, health and well-being of our delegates, sponsors, exhibitors, speakers and staff is our primary consideration.
As a result, CHIA NSW has made the decision to postpone the conference and caucus.
We understand that this decision will cause inconvenience especially for interstate and regional travellers but hope that all our supporters understand the reasons for the decision.
CHIA NSW is engaging with our venues on options for a conference later this year when we remain optimistic that the current challenges will have subsided.
We will continue to communicate with speakers, sponsors and delegates on matters arising from the cancellation of the conference and caucus.
Thank you for your understanding and support.
