Outgoing Treasurer

on .

aotpDue to work and personal commitments, I am no longer able to commit to the role of Treasurer and will be handing the work over to Sheila Su (current student rep) who will perform the role on a temporary basis.

If any members are interested to be on the committee, now is the time to express your interest. Contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or speak to your local committee member. Thank you for your patience and support whilst I learnt this role. I look forward to participating as one of the committee members for the remaining year.

To further secure our working relationships with the anaesthetists, we now have our monthly committee meetings at the ANZCA/ASA offices. This is hugely beneficial for AOTP and of course the committee members who attend the meetings every month, usually after work. - Linda Long.
