          “Coming together by staying apart” is the new norm. As we look to the future we all understand
          we are living in unprecedented times with the Coronavirus Covid-19, so staying connected is more
          important today than it has ever been. Globally political, financial and social institutions are facing
          several challenges.

          Everything we stand for as a human race is being challenged. It brings me back to the definition of
          civilization. A civilization is generally an advanced stage of organization. That means law, culture,
          a regular way of getting food and protecting the people. All the above have come  under threat,
          we have seen strong leadership and the best of humanity coming to the fore, and bringing us back
          to our key priority – our people. The current situation provides an opportunity for our community
          to demonstrate agility in terms of how we adapt to working individually and collectively during a
          period of uncertainty.

          As we celebrate this year our 20th anniversary, we are reinventing new ways in which we can
          support each other during this pandemic. As a society, one of
          our strengths is the opportunity for our community of more than
         100 members to connect and to network during our events and
         workshops. Our 80+ delivered society activities, and how we
         support you over the coming months is going to look different.

         During the past few months, we have embraced the concept
         of virtual learning and networking through our partners with
         a series of webinars. This channel of delivery will be ramped
         up considerably over the next period of time to support all our
         members, and to ensure that you continue to have access to high
         quality content and events. We thank our expert  members who
         have been providing virtual training and webinars for free to our
         existing members.

         As members of  #teambahrain, we are participating in  the
         various Covid-19 national campaigns:  #Together_for_Bahrain_
         Safety (Mutkatfeen) and Feena Khair

         Hence as we reinvent our daily lives, we encourage you to
         continue to renew your membership during this time to ensure
         we all keep connected.

         Keeping connected to a support community is more important
         than ever. Enjoy this issue and please remember   to share it
         with your friends and colleagues whom you think will enjoy it

         Please stay safe, stay well, stay connected and stay at home!
