Hi,

I attend the “Easing Restrictions and Increasing Responsibility Webinar” held by NAVA yesterday. It was recorded and it is available on their website and on YouTube (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hv1JjSUD7zc).

In essence it was about preparing a plan on how to handle people as we open our galleries and exhibition with the new conditions that will be placed upon us to provide a COVID safe environment.

There is some good information on how to handle conflict and how to be helpful rather than confrontational in certain situations. Most of the information presented is pertinent to us when we are hosting an exhibition.

The YouTube video is worth watching for the details.

Best wishes

Paul

Membership Renewals

Membership renewals for this year were sent out mid July.  We have had a great response so far but there are still some to come.  For some people (me included) there has been a glitch in logging on to gain access to credit card payments by Stripe.  Your password does not work and if you use the lost password approach it still does not work.   Our website guru is still trying to resolve it.  If you can remember your password and log in to the website and then go back to the renewal email it works.  The alternative is just pay by transfer to the ASV account.    BSB   063 105    Account No    00800382.  

We will be sending out further reminders once the password problem is fixed.  

Student members - at the last committee meeting it was resolved that student members would be given 3 years free membership.  If you are a student and wish to avail yourself of this please let me know (treasurer@sculptorsvictoria.asn.au) so that we can record it and not bother you with requests for subs!. We are refunding any who have just paid for this year.

Cheers

John
