ASCIA President’s message

As the end of 2016 approaches it is worth thinking about the significant growth, achievements and collaborations of ASCIA over the past year, and plans for 2017.  In case you missed it in the previous issue of this newsletter, a summary of highlights from 2016 and plans for 2017 is available at

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank ASCIA members, staff and supporters for your greatly appreciated contributions throughout 2016 and we look forward to working with you in 2017.  Best wishes for the Christmas and New Year holidays.

Dr William Smith
ASCIA President
