The Hague Conference


Our Conference to The Hague is now postponed.

Dates expected to be in October 2021

The Board of the Australian and New Zealand College of Notaries held a remote special meeting last Friday the 3rd of April 2020 to discuss the impact of the COVID-19 repercussions. Discussions were held about a few major topics but specifically in regards to our upcoming conference in October at The Hague.

Due to the uncertainty of world events, the Board voted to postpone our biannual conference at The Hague from this year to the following year, to be held around the same time in October 2021.

We realise that even that date may have to change depending on circumstances evolving from the global crisis.

We will keep all our members informed throughout the coming months.

In the meantime, please take care and follow the sensible health guidelines for a quick resolution to this situation.

Thank you for your understanding.

New Zealand Masterclass postponed

Stay tuned for new dates for our New Zealand masterclass

Our 2020 new Zealand Masterclass may be rescheduled for a later date or it may go online for a more accessible format for our Australian members to attend.

Please stay tuned for further developments.

The College Executive have considered the latest World Health Organisation announcement where they have categorised the COVID-19 as a pandemic.

The health and wellbeing of our Members and presenters is our priority. Accordingly, the Executive deem it essential to cancel all international travel and therefore the Masterclass scheduled in Auckland on Friday the 4th of April 2020 will be postponed to a future date.
