Staff will continue to be contactable by phone and email as usual. It is not certain exactly when staff will be able to return to the office, but we will continually evaluate the situation as it develops.
Please note: We are no longer able to receive any post to IMarEST offices, including membership applications, so would advise you to condider applying for membership online, or scan and send any corrsepondence to us via imarest.wetransfer.com.
Volunteers are asked to note that our advice is to avoid face-to-face meetings until further notice, moving to virtual meetings where possible. Should you require any assistance with this, please contact us.
