  7. Covid Policy. Due to the uncertainty surrounding interstate travel as our borders open up more and more, we have a contingency plan to mitigate risk in this area by planning the National Forum and Symposium with a baseline budget and line up of presenters and facilitators that are based in South Australia so that we can still run the symposium and forum if there are border closures. In addition to a secure baseline of SA presenter/facilitators and a budget that can cope with smaller numbers if need be, we will also have additional speakers from interstate who will be engaged on the proviso that they support our Covid contingency policy. Our venue and logistics arrangements will also be based on agreements with providers that support our contingency plan, so that we can still run the events with smaller numbers or postpone dates without penalty. What does this mean for you – It means that you can register for the symposium and forum secure in the knowledge that the event will still go ahead in the case of border closures, and interstate people will be refunded. Airlines now have more flexible policies with regard to travel cancellations due to Covid as well, so you can register for the conference with peace of mind. We look forward to at last being able to meet in person in a Covid safe environment with a Covid management plan that will be designed in conjunction with SAPOL and SA Health.
  8. Responsible Alcohol Policy. AABAT supports the values of the SA Baptist Care venue at Mylor and will therefore not have alcohol for purchase during the event. We are also mindful of health considerations pertaining to excess consumption of alcohol and respectful of individuals’ rights to consume alcohol responsibly. We therefore wish to advise that for evening meals participants will be given two vouchers which can be exchanged for two standard alcohol drinks or two soft drinks with evening meals on Friday and Saturday night.
