President’s Address December 2021

As 2021 comes to a close, I’d like to wish you all a wonderful and safe festive season and hope that you can spend time with your loved ones. It’s a time to celebrate our ability to connect in person again, to listen to each other’s stories, to rest and switch off from work. As you reflect on the year that has passed, make sure you celebrate your achievements, your health and your relationships and remember that achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by trying to achieve your goals. This will be our final eBulletin for 2021 and the eBulletin team will return in late January 2022.  I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year.

Another 11 people in Victoria have died after contracting COVID-19. Australia had the opportunity to do something truly remarkable in dealing with the Covid-19 pandemic. Instead, we’re stuffing it up.
