Welcome everyone to the last month of what has been a disruptive and tumultuous year! 

For those members who did not sign up to the ABSANZ Summit which was held last week, can I please encourage you to do so, there is well over 20 hours of high-quality recorded live webinar material and prerecorded training material – all of this will be available on demand to conference delegates until March next year.  I have even watched some of it with my kids so they can see how their COVID samples get processed through the lab.   

For 2021 we are hoping that ABSANZ can transition back to more traditional ways of meeting with members and COVID willing I have already seen an events and training calendar for 2021 which looks spectacular.  I would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every committee member for the hard work and dedication that you have put into ABSANZ over the last 12 months, it has been a challenging year however I am pleased to say that ABSANZ has continued to deliver strong information, training and support platforms for the membership.  To all of our wonderful members, many of whom have had front line roles during the pandemic I hope that you all have a wonderful safe break over the Christmas period.

Stay well and stay safe,

Stephen Coulter
