Member Newsletter – 23 March 2020

Dear members,

Regarding the Business Continuity Plan that was circulated to members last week, ANZAC House has now taken the decision to move to stage 2, effective from Tuesday, 24 March 2020. This decision was taken as a result of an increasing level of shutdown across many non-essential business sectors, and the obligation that RSL NSW has to provide a safe environment for its employees.

Having said that, we are still committed to delivering on our charitable purpose of supporting veterans and their families, as well as providing support to our sub-Branches and members. Similarly, sub-Branches are encouraged to reach out to veterans in their community and offer assistance to those local veterans in need.

As mentioned last week, ANZAC House will continue to operate however employees will be working from home rather than in the office. For example, meetings will now need to be done via teleconference rather than face-to-face as access to the office will be restricted. Our email and telephone contact will not change and these channels should remain your primary points of contact with ANZAC House should you require assistance. This is an unprecedented circumstance and there may be some disruption to normal business activity as we adjust to the new work environment, however please do not hesitate to contact us should you require any assistance.

We again ask for your patience and understanding during these challenging times.

 

Regards,

Jeff O’Brien
State Secretary & GM Member Services
