For our July ALIA (CRR) Canberra and Region Retirees Connect and Chat we are (tentatively) planning to have our first face-to-face event for 2020. Our thoughts are that we will shorten the meeting, making it a lunch-time event. If between now and then there is a second wave of COVID-19 cases in the ACT we will cancel the face-to-face meeting and move to a virtual meeting.
ALIA CRR (Canberra and Region Retirees) is meeting virtually to ensure the welllbeing of our participants in our monthly Connect and Chat events.
if you'd like to join our Virtual Connect and Chat event on Wednesday 3 June, please let us know and we will send you an invitation. The event will run from 11am and last about 40 minutes.
