Re: AICCWA Virtual Events 2020 

As the Coronavirus pandemic has recently escalated and new public gathering and travel restrictions have been put in place, it is obvious that it would be professionally irresponsible for AICC(WA) to hold any public major business functions in the immediate future.  

As a result, we have postponed all our physical events until later in the year, however we now have an AICCWA Virtual Calendar of events open to all - see below including Virtual Online Coding program for Kids

These Virtual Events are available to you on line now (member rates and non member rates still apply to all Virtual events).

We look forward to you participating in these events.

Very sincerely
