I'm writing to you with an early edition of my monthly newsletter to let you know that starting Friday 21 March, Professional Association Management Services will be handling our administration. Our contact details will change, so please refer to the news item below.
They'll be taking over from Waldron Smith Management, and I'd personally like to thank Gerard Halpin, Kate Smith and Kim O’Dea from Waldron Smith for all their hard work. I particularly appreciated Kate’s support organising the 2012 AIP Congress in Sydney.
This year we are celebrating the United Nations International Year of Crystallography, marking 100 years of using X-ray diffraction to study the structure of materials. There'll be all kinds of events: the public art exhibition Crystals in the City will tour Australia in August, and the AIP and ANSTO will host a public talk on crystallography in May.
