The coronavirus pandemic, COVID-19, has created significant disruptions to the work practices of many organisations globally. These unprecedented circumstances have now resulted in the ARMS Executive Office operating off-site until further notice.
The ARMS Winter School is a popular feature in the Society's annual professional development calendar. This year’s program offers seven (7) new and or enhanced electives for research management professionals who wish to develop a deeper understanding of a particular topic and its application to research management.
ARMS is part of a global community of research management professionals that aim to develop best practice and attain excellence in research management. The society also works with countries where research management is an emerging profession to support the awareness and practice of research management.
ARMS works with all stakeholders and influencers to promote the research management profession. It facilitates the delivery of research management practices that support future research excellence.
The COVID-19 pandemic has forced all of us to change the way we communicate and work with one another during these unprecedented times. I write to advise that the AEN Advisory Committee have had lengthy discussions regarding the 2020 Conference delivery. In the interests of safety and wellbeing of our conference delegates and support staff, the committee has regrettably decided to postpone the 2020 Melbourne Conference for delivery in 2021.
Postponement of the ARMS 2020 Conference: It is with great regret that the Board has decided to postpone the 2020 Perth Conference. The next ARMS Conference will now be delivered in Perth in September 2021 at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre (dates yet to be confirmed).
Through Chapters, Special Interest Groups and Networks, ARMS provides opportunities and recources to drive the development and sharing of best practice. These foster dialogue, accessibly, learnings and synergies amongst its members and stakeholders.
The Society supports the development of excellent research managemnet professionals. It provides a diverse and broadly accessible range of professional development opportunities, including a high quality accreditation program, and other resources to enable members to continually enhance their skills and expertise.
COVID-19 has changed the way we communicate, we work and we connect with one another on a daily basis.
ARMS has created this dedicated resource page as a support to you, our valued member. This resource page provides you with a snap shot of the many number of dedicated organisations out there to support you through these unprecedented times.
We also invite you to watch the webinar we recently delivered to all member on “Mental Health and Relational Safety in a COVID-19 World” presented by Professor Nicholas Procter, RN MBA PhD from UniSA.
Keep safe, keep healthy, be kind and support one another!
