4.1/ Meeting Costs for the Physical Discuss / Chat Meetings (when they again occur)

Due increased Public Liability Insurance costs (now for $20M compared to previously $10M) and the cost to hire the venue has also increased please make a donation of $5-$10 towards these costs.

4.2/ No Direct Meeting Costs for the Webinar Discuss / Chat Meetings 

HOWEVER it would appreciated if everyone considers subscribing to Jeff Simpson’s Hazmat & Environment Notes

When we physically meet in a Community Meeting Room, the typical cost will be around $5-$10 each (depending on numbers): for hire, insurance, nibbles, (as hire & insurance costs have both increased significantly & fewer physical attendees to share over)

o

The fourth DGAG 2022  meeting, will be on Wed 24th August 2022
This meeting is expected to be a joint Physical & Webinar Discuss/Chat Meeting.
