We must admit, we were a little nervous about last week’s announcement that we are progressing plans for ConEx 2020 – our first annual regional Convention and Exhibition for Bushfire Volunteers and the Local Government Officers who support them.
But just like every one of our incredible members knows, good planning, adequate precaution and a fit-for-purpose solution needs only a little courage mixed in to deliver a winning recipe.
The strong interest we have already had from Bushfire Volunteers, Local Government CESMs and other officers, sponsors and exhibitors has, frankly, been bloody wonderful!
As we said in our announcement, we know there are a lot of hurdles to clear before the event can go ahead in October (and some like COVID-19 are out of anyone’s control), but we believe it is important to not only plan to deliver more direct member services but also make sure our members and the families, friends and regional towns that support them can see the same very positive future we can see.
