16th March 2020
Jersey Australia, in consultation with the Sunshine Coast Jersey Cattle Breeders Club and Jersey Qld, wish to advise that the 2020 Jersey Australia Annual General Meeting and Conference, scheduled to be held in Noosa on June 2nd – 5th 2020, has been postponed due to the current Coronavirus pandemic.
While not an easy decision to make this far out from the event, we are in an unprecedented and rapidly changing situation with no ironclad guarantee that further travel and congregational event restrictions will be enforced. The Board and organisers considered it appropriate to make this decision to prioritise members health and prevent unnecessary cost outlay that may not be recoverable.
Jersey Australia encourages all members to take appropriate steps as prescribed by the World Health Organisation and Federal and State Government Health Departments to maintain good health and hygiene for yourself, your family and your community during this time.
Jersey Australia will continue to plan an AGM to be held later this year in accordance with our constitutional requirements, which may include a meeting utilising video or teleconferencing.
We thank the Sunshine Coast Jersey Cattle Breeders Club and Jersey Qld for their efforts to date in putting together an exciting conference for members. Rest assured we aim to take our AGM and Conference to QLD when possible.
Should you have any questions or concerns please contact myself or Glen Barrett.

President General Manager
