With the start of the national roll-out of the COVID-19 vaccine and the news of international flights returning, the future is looking great for everyone and our industry.
We surveyed our members on their thoughts about attending this year's National Conference on 12-15 September 2021 and we were encouraged to hear that they are looking forward to it as well as catching-up face-to-face. Our National Conference will be a hybrid of virtual and physical ensuring that no one will miss out. We plan to launch very soon so keep an eye out for announcements.
Last week, we ran a live, virtual information session for our Awards of Excellence program with some very useful tips. If you missed out on this, we've made this available to you on our website.
And as we enter the autumn months, our parks and open spaces begin their transformation into an array of orange and red colours. I hope you all take the time to get some fresh air while exploring enjoy your local park during Parks Week which kicks-off this Saturday.
Stay safe and happy reading.
