From the President
As I step into the role as President of our college I have taken some time to reflect.
I am certainly following in the footsteps of some amazing leaders.
On behalf of the College as well as personally I would like to place in record my personal thanks to Claire Boardman for her visionary leadership and Marija for her amazing ability to engage and continue to bring the vision of the college to fruition.
My vision and goal is to continue to develop our college and the National model that has been our focus for a number of years now.
Delivering measurable benefits to you, our members through education, research opportunities and continuing to promote infection prevention and control on the National agenda will be the focus for my term as President.
I encourage all members to continue to be engaged with college activities, take the opportunity to look at what your college has to offer in the form of educational and research scholarships.
Come along to our National conference enjoy the fantastic scientific program, network and share stories with your peers.
I'm looking forward to seeing you all in Adelaide.
