Announcements

As indicated last week the health and safety of our members is the top priority of the NZLLA Nat Exec.

 

Due to the uncertainty around Covid-19 we have made the difficult decision to cancel the Privacy Commission lunchtime session scheduled for Tuesday 24th March.

 

We are hoping to reschedule this session later in the year when things are a more certain.

 

There is a substantial amount of information in the media around Covid-19. We recognize that individual organizations will have their own policies in place in response to COVID-19, and members will need to be guided by their own organizations in response to this uncertain time. Specific information for NZ Libraries is being led by LIANZA and can be found here: https://lianza.org.nz/covid-19-coronavirus-new-zealand-libraries/

 

In addition a wider GLAM initiative is tracking closures,cancellations and reduced services across Aotearoa. You may wish to add your libraries information to this page https://www.ndf.org.nz/covid19-and-nz-glams

 

Please get in touch via info@nzlla.org.nz if you have any questions.

NZLLA President

COVID-19 update

13 Mar 2020

Given the current outbreak and media profile of the COVID-19 virus, the NZLLA Nat Exec felt it important to update members as to how it may impact the NZLLA’s operations and events.

The safety and health of our members is a top priority for us. As part of our duty of care to our members attending in-person events, we are monitoring and following advice from the NZ Government and Ministry of Health.

The Ministry of Health has assessed the current risk level of coronavirus to individuals in New Zealand as low. To date, they have not proposed altering arrangements for public events.

Accordingly, as of today all NZLLA events will be going ahead as planned, unless there is a change in advice from the Ministry of Health. This includes our monthly meetings in Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch, and Dunedin, and the Privacy Commission lunchtime session later this month (including the video link up sessions in Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch and Dunedin). However, we will also provide an individual dial in option for members to attend remotely, and do encourage this where possible. We recognize that individual organizations will have their own policies in place in response to COVID-19, and members will need to be guided by their own organization in participating in NZLLA events.

For the latest Ministry of Health updates, information and advice, please visit the Ministry website

We will continue to monitor the situation. Should there be any updates affecting the NZLLA or its events, we will communicate these to members.

If you have any queries or specific concerns, please feel free to get in touch via info@nzlla.org.nz

Kind regards
Elizabeth
