Annual Conference going virtual

13 September 2021 ASMS

A difficult call has been made to hold the ASMS Annual Conference in November as a virtual only event. The outbreak of the Delta strain of Covid-19 means it is difficult to plan for large events due to potential alert level changes restricting travel and the size of gatherings.

Registration forms will be available soon. If you would like to be sent a registration link when registrations open, please email
