President’s Report

Dear Members

I thought that the previous year was exciting and busy, but this year has surpassed it! Our Committee have done an amazing job. I would like to thank them for their enthusiasm, feedback, support, tireless hard work and new innovative ideas.

We have introduced our Newsletter, revamped our Facebook page, website, ticket purchasing for speaker nights to name but a few amazing changes. Our next big venture is to increase our numbers of members for the coming year and to plan the 2020 QONSIG Conference to be held at The Chancellor in Brisbane.

This past year we have had speaker night at SAWMH, TPCH, St Andrews Ipswich and St Vincent’s Northside. We ventured out to St Andrews Toowoomba for a morning workshop which was great fun and well attended. Toowoomba made QONSIG feel very welcome. We also assisted to help plan and organise a day workshop held and hosted at The Mater Hospital, Townsville. Once again, the Committee attended and had a great time networking with other Orthopaedic staff. Our two ventures far afield.

I would like to mention our friends at Mölnlycke, Cardinal Health, Abbot, and Covidien for their continued support and sponsorship with lovely suppers, nibbles and drink. Showing us their new and innovative products is always exciting.

I am sure many of you feel as I do that the year is disappearing before our very eyes but we still as a group have a lot to do and look forward to our to do list for the coming year. We look forward to our speaker nights, networking and venturing to new venues.

I would like to thank the outgoing committee once again for their tireless energy, attention to detail and wonderful support and friendship over the last year.

I am looking forward to our Conference and the year to come.
