Rollover is offering a big shout out to Association of Superannuation Funds of Australia chief executive, Dr Martin Fahy, for his continued optimism with respect to his organisation’s national conference.
Anyone making inquiries about the conference will find that it is still scheduled to held from 3-5 February in Brisbane – something which is probably already giving rise to some raised eyebrows amongst those who might or might not attend the event.
The last time Rollover looked Queensland Premier, Annastasia Palaszczuk was still holding firm on keeping the border closed to almost anyone living south of the Tweed River and, so far as anyone can tell, there is not likely to be a COVID-19 vaccine available in Australia until perhaps the second half of 2021, if then.
So as Rollover has asked before, what do the people at ASFA know that others don’t know and why do they remain optimistic?
Rollover’s advice to ASFA is that they should do what everyone else has so far done, accept the inevitable and hold a virtual conference.
