RCCIWA Survey – Impacts on Regional Business of Mandatory COVID 19 Vaccination

To continue our advocacy, and in response to member feedback we are conducting this survey to capture how regional businesses are being or expect to be impacted by the COVID 19 Vaccination Mandate. We will use the information collected to inform Government to advocate for the appropriate information, advice and support being put in place as we all work towards being able to open up our State. We would appreciate it if you could share our survey link with the above wording to your membership network where appropriate. RCCIWA Survey – Impacts on Regional Businesses of Vaccine Mandate

RCCIWA Share n Learn Online Sessions

In August we commenced our monthly Share N Learn online workshops, with three being held so far covering revenue streams, membership & sponsorship structures and marketing your organisation. They are proving to be very valuable sessions with lots of great information shared and very informative conversations. A big thank you to Simone de Been for suggesting the whole concept of the Share n Learn and for offering to facilitate sessions. Based on the very positive feedback from our members we will continue to hold these each month. They are a fantastic way to share ideas, activities, processes, and ways of working as well as for picking up very relevant tips, tricks and suggestions. Our final Share n Learn for 2021 is:

     Tuesday November 23rd

     10am to 11.30am
