Update by the Board

March 14, 2020By


Dear Members,

We want to assure you, that we follow the development very carefully in regards to COVID-19. The health and security of our members, and families is very important to us. 

Status Quo for Latvia 

On Thursday, the Latvian government declared a state of emergency, which effects various areas of our daily life. Schools have been closed, social gatherings and public events are not taking place.

AGM postponed & Meetings cancelled

Therefore, the IWCR Board has decided not to hold the Annual General Meeting, and to postponed it to May. 

Part of the decision is, that we will also cancel all Morning and Evening Meet & Greets, Social Tours and activities until May. For individual groups, like Conversation Groups, we leave the decision to the group leaders if the planned meetings can take place. Please contact the relevant coordinator. 

We understand that this demands a lot from everyone.

We remain operative

Due to this very extraordinary situation, the current Board members have all confirmed to remain active to ensure we can operate as a club. This extraordinary solution remains active until we have elected a new board.

Social responsibility

We are sure you are supporting the decision not to hold face to face meetings. The overall social task right now is to curb the outbreak of COVID-19 or slow down the spreading in the service of society – on the one hand to relieve our medical care and on the other hand to reduce the likelihood that more people will be infected.

The only way to prevent this is social distancing today. 

Thank you very much for your understanding. The IWCR Board team will review the situation constantly and share a next update by April 14th. In case of questions, please contact board.iwcr@gmail.com.

Stay healthy, and wash you hands as often as you can!

Your IWCR Board team
