Welcome to the SA Branch of ACEL.
On behalf of all us here at ACEL we wish to start by extending our thoughts to each and everyone of you, your families and schools in this unprecedented time. It is a difficult and unsettling situation for citizens across the world as they deal with the confusion and uncertainty amidst the COVID-19 pandemic and in this time we express our support, admiration and solidarity with our fellow educators for their continued leadership and guidance to our students through such an unparalleled situation.
Together with my fellow ACEL Branch Presidents we wanted to ensure we outlined our response and actions in regards to upcoming ACEL activity for our members and guests.
As you are likely aware, information about COVID-19 is being updated rapidly and the response both locally and internationally continues to escalate significantly. Accordingly, ACEL have decided to postpone all events and workshops that were currently scheduled between March and June 2020. New dates and updated information for each event will soon be announced and all current registrants will have their registration automatically moved to the new dates. Each registrant will also be contacted individually by ACEL with further direct information.
ACEL online services, publications and support will continue to operate without interruption with additional resources and webinars being implemented over this time for continued PD support as part of your membership package.
ACEL regret this reschedule or previously promoted events and any impact hence caused to our valued education network. However the health and safety of our members, staff and partners is our number one priority and we believe this to be in the best interest of all.
Thank you to all and we look forward to coming together once again via workshops, events and awards ceremonies once this period has passed us.
ACEL SA Branch President
