COVID-19 and running a trial 2022

As like last year in 2022 we are faced with new challenges from COVID-19, however as we have proven over the last 2 years, we are up to the challenge! 


As an association we are also bound to follow the current Government guidelines and regulations and as such the committee have considered all current regulations and restrictions and developed a guide for all committees to support the running of their trial in 2022.


Please note all affiliated trials must be aligned to government policies and regulations.


I’m sure everyone is aware that these regulations change quickly and we do our upmost to provide updated information as it comes to hand.


Please find attached the QWCDTAI COVID-19 position statement to support the running of your trial in 2022. 

Planning Your Trial Date

When setting a date for a new trial, contact the President so that dates can be coordinated with existing trials on the calendar.

All organising Trial Committees are requested to submit the following details to the President to have their trial considered:

  • Date of trial
  • Venue
  • Contact name/s and phone number/s and/or email/s of key person for nominations

Ideally, trial dates are to be finalised for the following calendar year by September of the preceding year, to enable publication in the association's newsletter and printed calendars.

Running Your Trial

Trial committees should refer to Helping You Run a Trial with QWCDTAInc booklet.  For a current copy, please contact either the Secretary or Treasurer.  

Ask the Association's Executive Committee to clarify any issues you may come across during the planning and running of the trial - don't be afraid to ask!!
