Chair Message

Wishing you all a wonderful year for 2017. Once again we look forward to welcoming to our Chapter meetings and we hope to meet up with as many of you as we can throughout the year.

The Victorian chapter meetings, held bimonthly, offer an opportunity for networking, professional development encompassing clinical studies, research and educational updates. We have also introduced a journal club whereby member’s publications and research may be acknowledged and applauded. We welcome any suggestions that you may have to incorporate professional development sessions into our meeting format.

For all meetings we have teleconferencing facilities available, and we are looking to introduce new technology with which we can connect with more of you in a Webinar-type version of the usual meetings. The traditional face-to-face meeting format will continue as well. We hope that by offering alternate meeting delivery that we can instil a renewed energy for meeting attendance and encourage greater member participation.  If you plan on attending the meetings in person they will all held at the ANMF building, 540 Elizabeth Street, Melbourne. To join the meetings by teleconferencing facilities or webinar-style attendance please let Jenny Furness (Sec) know a week prior to the meeting and she will arrange your virtual attendance for you.
