On behalf of AIMS, I would like to invite members, students, trade and colleagues to join us for the National Scientific Meeting in Adelaide, South Australia from 21st-23rd August 2024. This will be our first face to face national scientific meeting post pandemic to allow more interaction, networking and collaboration. By listening to talks, viewing posters and discussing new ideas can improve your knowledge and awareness of advances in medical laboratory science. The face to face interaction offers exchange of experiences with other colleagues helping you to improve practice in your own laboratory. We will welcome back our trade partners to display up to date technology to allow conference participants to learn the new advances and initiatives. This will also be an excellent continuing educational opportunity to obtain CPD points towards your APACE certificate and certification. There will also be opportunity for touring destinations in South Australia to appreciate its natural landscapes.

"Our Farm is where everything began over 40 years ago. And, humble though it is – I never tire of the surprise and delight I see on peoples faces as they come through the front doors and reslise we are sitting on the side of a dam. Everyday, when I walk in, its like coming home – and I know I will never lose that feeling. The Farm will always remain in our family as our special place that we love to share with visitors. Visitors can see the vast array of delicious products all under one roof. A stroll in the fresh are with our ‘Farm Walk’ that begins around the dam that is such a haven for local birdlife, or catching sight of the native turtles in the dam. Enjoy one of the many farm experiences in the Farm Shop, take part in a cooking class with Executive Chef, Tim Bourke and lunch in my daughter’s ever popular The Eatery Restaurant. Enjoy your visit" - Maggie Beer
