WMG Events Update

MAKING THE BEST OF A  DIFFICULT SITUATION

It appears that it is now WA’s turn to deal with the Omicron COVID variant.

While there is little infection in WA at present, the spread of the Omicron variant is very rapid and it is likely, based on national and worldwide experience, that there will be about 2 months of high infection rates.

It is understood that this period is likely to cover the months of February/March/April, and possibly further,  and means that the delivery of events may be impacted for the West Midlands Group in the first part of the year. 

Much of the Agriculture industry is postponing, cancelling, or moving events to online formats to allow them to plan with more confidence.

With all this uncertainty in mind, the WMG Seasonal Updates will not go ahead in its traditional format for this year.

While the WMG understand that missing out on these face-to-face events is a considerable and continual frustration to our members and local community, we are taking this opportunity to flip this event into something fun, informative, innovative and accessible!

Rather than just a 'straight to zoom' conversion, this is yet another chance for the WMG to flex the communication muscles that we have been developing over the last two years in the shadow of COVID, and it will be an opportunity for members and the community to see how much WMG has grown over the course of the last 4 years.

We are currently in the process of finalising the details for the Seasonal Updates rework, but get excited for what will be a week of shared knowledge, community participation, conversation, information and assuredly a whole lot of fun!

The WMG team is already working hard to deliver the best possible event experience to both our members and the local community.

So, make sure you have all of your contact details up to date with us, keep a close eye on your inbox and mailbox, and stay tuned for lots more information on the Seasonal Updates Event in the very near future!

Seasonal Updates Festival

The WMG team have put their collective heads and experience together to reimagine the Seasonal Updates, leading to the introduction of the Seasonal Updates Festival.

While the content for this festival will indeed be hosted online, the creativity and ingenuity of the WMG team and its partners will be showcased in what promises to be a first of its kind event within the grower group arena.

WMG are also particularly aware of both the numerous hardships and struggles communities across WA have recently been through, such as the devastating fires in Corrigin, and the inevitable rise in COVID cases and need for isolation.

With these considerations in the forefront of the team’s minds, WMG have made the decision to make this festival online, and completely free for everyone to attend.

This includes other grower group teams and their members, other related industry and research individuals, institutions, and any interested party in between.

The festival is set to run from Monday 14th to Friday 18th March, with two 30-minute presentations per day, from ten different speakers.

With time being as precious as ever, the daily sessions will run from 12pm to 1pm.

Attendees can expect presentations from the likes of Rabobank’s Crawford Taylor, CBH’s Ben MacNamara, The Livestock Collective’s Amelia Nolan, and Stirlings to Coast's Phil Honey, covering topics concerning pasture, livestock, cropping and agribusiness.
