The rapidly evolving situation regarding the containment and spread of the Covid-19 virus is now starting to impact on all strands of society and economic life in Ireland. With the welfare of our members being of primary concern, Brokers Ireland have regrettably decided to cancel our forthcoming Spring Members Meetings which were due to take place from 06-09th April in Athlone, Kilkenny, Cork and Dublin.
As you can appreciate, the health, safety and well-being of our members are of paramount importance and given the escalating scale of this situation, we feel that it is in the best interest of the Broker community to curtail unnecessary gatherings and lessen the risk of exposure to members. In lieu of our Spring Members Meetings, we are currently working on offering members alternative webinar seminars to replace each of the scheduled presentations across compliance, life and general insurance CPD sessions. These webinar sessions will offer the equivalent number of CPD accreditation hours and we expect to have the full event and registration details confirmed shortly.
As the situation regarding the Covid-19 virus unfolds, we will do our utmost to keep you updated on other planned member events and activities which may need to be postponed until further notice.
There is currently extensive information regarding the Covid-19 virus (some sources listed below) which we would encourage you to check in on a daily basis and heed expert advice in the face of new developments as they arise. As we face unchartered territory, Brokers Ireland stand ready to offer whatever support we can to members during this emerging crisis.
