John Downes

Dear Members

John Downes here, your new IMC VICTAS Chapter President. 

Today, 3 August, 2020, the Premier of Victoria, Daniel Andrews, provided further clarification of the Victorian Government Stage 4 restrictions:

Community Restrictions: https://www.dhhs.vic.gov.au/stage-4-restrictions-covid-19#metropolitan-melbourne--stage-4-restrictions

Business Restrictions for the three categories of industry and how they will continue to trade or be partially shutdown: https://www.dhhs.vic.gov.au/updates/coronavirus-covid-19/premiers-statement-business-restrictions.

Your Chapter Council met tonight to discuss the potential impacts on business and our members. We are here to support each other. These are very challenging times and each of us will be affected to some degree. Whilst there are a number of support programs available from State and Federal governments on their websites, we would like to invite you all to an informal members-only off-the-record Zoom call this Friday afternoon 7 August at 4pm to discuss any issues that you are having in your practice at this time. We expect that there will be questions we are all interested in such as: 

Where do I get government support and how?

What tools and techniques are working for you running your practice from home?

How do you build a pipeline in this challenging time?
