Unmetered Supplies User Group (UMSUG)
Events relating to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) are changing on a daily basis. We took an early decision to base all of our staff at home as a means of continuing our service uninterrupted, and to help in efforts to stop the spread of the virus. Consequently, for the time being, we will no longer be hosting meetings at our London office, though we will continue to provide our services as normal.
Please read through our guidance with respect to forthcoming meetings which will be hosted remotely for the foreseeable future. Your meeting host will be in contact with you to ensure all necessary arrangements are in place to hold meetings virtually.
Clearly the specific advice we are referencing here may change so we ask all committee members and stakeholders to ensure they keep up to date on advice from the Government and we will also update our procedures, and notify you, as appropriate.
