Coronavirus (COVID-19) - information for members and customers

Updated 19/03/20

The health and wellbeing of our members, event and course attendees, and employees is a key priority for the Governance Institute of Australia.

Accordingly, we are closely monitoring the evolving situation regarding coronavirus (COVID-19).

We understand that our members may be concerned by the global developments, particularly in relation to their face-to-face attendance at events and courses and we will continue to draw directly on the official advice and information provided by the World Health Organisation and by both Federal and State government authorities.

Accordingly, we are moving all postgraduate students to fully online (distance) study, effective from Monday 23 March 2020 and for the remainder of this semester.

All enrolled students have been emailed directly with further information about this.

The April face-to-face short courses have been postponed at this time. However,  our short courses are available online

These are temporary measures and we will continue to monitor official advice and update our program of events accordingly.

We are also closely monitoring the situation for the Governance and Risk Management Forum 2020 that is due to be held in May, including potentially turning this into a digital event. These plans will be finalised by 31 March. We will communicate directly with members and attendees with further information.

We will continue to update this page as further information comes to hand.
