FIA update regarding COVID-19

Given both the uncertainty and the rapidly-changing nature of COVID-19 in Australia, Fundraising Institute Australia (FIA) has considered the steps we need to take to ensure the health and safety of our staff, volunteers, consultants and contractors. FIA plan and manage close to 200 events each year in every state and the ACT.

FIA are recommending that State events scheduled for the remainder of March and April be postponed or converted to Zoom or similar, where appropriate. FIA is working with FIA State Chairs to manage State events and we will advise accordingly. With regard to FIA’s education program, we are currently planning to postpone all FIA face-to-face courses effective from Monday 23 March 2020 until further notice.

As the situation is changing rapidly, FIA will continue to update course registrants and prospective students including for events and activities from May onwards. FIA will also work with individuals and organisations regarding payments and credits. Please contact training@fia.org.au for more information.
