NZATS Open Forum postponement
The difficult decision has been made to postpone the NZATS Open Forum originally organised for this Friday. While there is no official directive for domestic travel we feel that it would be irresponsible professionally for this event to take place in the current situation.
We apologies for any inconvenience, but everyone’s safety is paramount.
We will announce a rescheduled date once the situation has settled down.
