Very important - please read as soon as possible!

Hi

I'd like to bring to your attention the email (copied below), that I have just sent out, concerning our next event and potential problems with our website.  Please note this and take the appropriate action.

Value Seminar Special Offer

Hi

Value Proposition Seminar, 13th March 2018

We feel that this is a such an interesting and unique Seminar for AQMLM, with some excellent speakers, that gets to the very heart of what we do in clinical laboratories: adding value for the patient!

So in order to encourage attendance for this special meeting only, we are offering account holders and members the facility to defer payment until the next financial year.

JCTLM Stakeholder status

Hi all

At the beginning of December I attended the JCTLM Stakeholders meeting at BIPM in Sevres just outside Paris.  (I have been involved in JCTLM activities on behalf of UK NEQAS since its inception.)

Subsequent to that meeting, I applied for AQMLM to be a JCTLM Stakeholder and have just heard that this has been accepted.

This means that AQMLM is recognised by JCTLM and can be actively involved in its work in the promotion of metrological traceability in laboratory medicine.

With Seasons Greetings,

Jonathan Middle

Start of the subscription year

Hi all

Today (Sunday 1st October), I have run the module that resets AQMLM membership status. 

All full members, except those who have recently renewed or joined for the new year (1st October 2017 - 30th September 2018), are now reset as website account holders.

If you wish to renew, please do so as soon as possible to maintain your member benefits. 

Ready for IBMS Congress?

Hi

We are nearly ready for the Congress!  Our stand (R6) will be set up Sunday morning and will open with the rest of the Exhibition first thing Monday.  

We will have our usual promotional items and chocolates to attract people to the stand.  As well as the usual daily champagne draw we are having another for anyone agreeing to sign up as a full member during the Congress.  The winner will get free membership and free attendance at a meeting of their choice!

 

Hope to see you there!

Jonathan

Change of date for next Seminar

Important change of meeting date!

My apologies, but for operational reasons we have had to change the date of the "Quality Management of New Technologies" Seminar on 12th September, 2017 to Thursday, 19th October 2017.  Details are on the Forthcoming Events page.

The date for the December Workshop is unchanged.

Kind regards,

Jonathan
