Chair Message

Welcome to 2017!

As many of you will know our previous Chair, Lee Poole, is now ACNP National Vice President, and I am acting as the interim Chair until the next round of ACNP elections. Lee has done an inspiring job as the Queensland Chair and I would like to take the opportunity to thank Lee and wish him all the best for the future. 

2017 promises to be a very exciting year for the Queensland Chapter as we are hosting the National Conference – ACNP 2017. This event is being held in Brisbane at the Sofitel on 4th – 7th September.   For further information about the conference please visit the website and if you would like to help the convening committee please contact Lee Poole, who is the Conference Convenor.

We are also going to trial the introduction of an education forum in combination with the quarterly member meetings. The first combined event will be held on 17 February from 1700 – 2100. Jodie Allen and Daniel O’Neill are currently working on the program for the event and we will keep you posted via the Queensland Chapter email and facebook page. In the meantime if you have any ideas regarding speakers (or would like to provide a session yourself) please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Meeting dates for next year are available below and we look forward to catching up with you either at the meetings or on-line. If you have any questions, comments, or good news stories you would like to share please don’t hesitate to contact me by email at:

Warm regards

Suzanne Williams
