Message from the President

Welcome to Spring edition of Australasian College of Aesthetic Medicine newsletter. 

It has been another productive and expansive year for the aesthetic industry and Australasian College of aesthetic medicine (ACAM). Globally the aesthetic industry continues to grow and continue to command the attention of not just the longer living healthy baby boomers, but also the younger generation both male and female. This interest has been reflected in the increase in the membership of our College. I continue to urge you to and proactively contribute and be involved with the College. 

I am pleased to convey the very positive feedback the Board has had with regards to the new website. Please ensure you make the most of your membership by taking full advantage of the new features and remember to keep your details up-to-date so you can promote your clinic.

Ongoing attention is being directed to updating the Diploma and Registrar Programs for which we welcome mentors for the Registrars. I wish to thank Sharron and her team who have been involved in the redevelopment of the tutorials of the Programs which is progressing well.

I wish to welcome you to our annual conference in the Hunter Valley this year. Enjoy the rest of the year with friends and loved ones.
