    I can’t believe it’s already March and the time for our first 2018 newsletter is here. For that matter I feel like I’m still adjusting to the idea of 2018! So luckily 2018 brings with it numerous exciting events and opportunities to connect with your ASSBI colleagues and share wisdom across lots of developing and new practice areas. Indeed, we start the year with an excellent workshop just around the time corner on 26 March. This full day workshop, sponsored by Shine Lawyers, brings together the expert knowledge of Associate Professor Carolina Bottari and Professor Sylvain Giroux from Canada. Their workshop is entitled Real people, Real life: Evaluations, cognitive assistance and smart homes for adult individuals with moderate or severe TBI and you can choose to attend in person in Sydney or through our live streaming option. For further information: View Event Details.

    This rapid flow of time also means that our 41st Brain Impairment Conference, 3-5 May, in Adelaide is almost here check it out. Yes the early bird registration closes on April 1st – so don’t be foolish and miss out. Working to reflect our conference theme, Connecting and Collaborating in Rehabilitation, Liz Williams and her conference team have assembled a stellar team of keynote speakers and produced a programme covering a broad range of interests and topic areas across multiple disciplines. I look forward to seeing you there and catching up in person.

    You will have recently received an email reminding you about the ASSBI Early Clinical Innovation Award. This award is designed to recognise innovation in the field of brain impairment consistent with our mission to improve the lives of individuals and families affected by progressive and non-progressive neurological conditions across the lifespan. For the purposes of this award, an early career clinician is defined as someone who was awarded their highest level of qualification within the last 10 years (career disruptions such as maternity, sick or carer leave are also taken into consideration). So if you are a clinical innovator or know someone who is, we’d love to receive an application from you by 15 March (Click here to download an application form).

    In closing, let me say I hope the year has had a good start for you all and continues in that vein (or better) through 2018.

    Warmest wishes,

    Jacinta Douglas, President

    ASSBI is deeply saddened by the death of Dr Kevin Walsh, at the age of 92, on 4th December 2017.

    It is with heavy heart that we come to the end of our 40th anniversary year with the loss of our founder, Dr Kevin W. Walsh, who passed away on Monday 4 December, 2017 aged 92 years. Kevin was an inspiration to us all and a friend and mentor to so many. I have heard Kevin frequently described with numerous superlatives capturing his amazing expertise across the full range of clinical, teaching and research practice in neuropsychology. Expertise however was not his only claim to fame, he was a warm, compassionate, wise and insightful man, a leader with a unique knack of challenging old ideas and planting the seeds for many new ones. Kevin will be missed far and wide by all who had the privilege of crossing paths with him.  Thank you so much Kevin for getting us started and for keeping us going over so many years.

     As the year closes and I reflect on the impressive quantum of activity that captures the ASSBI commitment to working together to improve the lives of people with brain impairment, there is much to be proud of. We have a strong membership with well over 400 members across multiple disciplines in all states. We continue to grow our commitment to the region and also more broadly with an eye to international collaboration. From a regional perspective, it is exciting to be planning our 2019 conference in Wellington, New Zealand with an aim to collaborate with the New Zealand Rehabilitation Association (NZRA).  Internationally, we have continued our productive dialogue with the International Neuropsychological Society (INS) with a view to both organisations collaborating by sharing information, providing expertise, giving mutual support, and developing joint action in areas of common interest.

    The success of our society rests with numerous people and special 2017 thanks are in order to many. These include the amazing committee members; you can see them one and all https://assbi.com.au/Committees including Margaret our CEO who I can say confidently is without rival anywhere, our corporate partners Shine Lawyers who continue to give us such valuable support, the 2017 conference committee with Dana Wong at the helm who delivered our fabulous 40th anniversary event in Melbourne – the largest ever stand-alone ASSBI conference with 445 delegates (You can refresh any waning memories and bring an ASSBI smile to your face by a visit to https://assbi.com.au/resources/Documents/2017%20Conference%20Report.pdf.); the 2018 conference committee members so ably led by Liz Williams who have created a marvellous program to entice you all to Adelaide https://assbi.com.au/ASSBI-Conferences and all the contributors to our rich and varied workshop and webinar program for 2017.

    I would like to close my thanks with a particular special mention to Mike Hennessy who not only has tirelessly and expertly supported our web presence over many years but who also on his retirement has overseen the transition to the new site. Mike your contribution to ASSBI has been immeasurable and your quiet, supportive, reliable presence will be sorely missed – thank you 

    Warmest wishes for the holiday season and a new year full of pleasant surprises,

    Jacinta Douglas, President

    I am very proud of the new website from Wild Apricot. This took a lot of work from a lot of people. I’d like to thank our President Jacinta for her unfailing support of me whilst this gruelling challenge took place.

    Michael Sugg from Advance Web Design for his sense of humour, patience with me and my non-techy way of dealing with things and hours of behind the scenes hard work dealing with outside forces such as CVENT, G-Suite, PayPal and of course Wild Apricot themselves to get it to where it is now.

    And last, but definitely not least, huge thanks to Mike Hennessy for the 25+ years of looking after the old website and his help with the transition to the new one.

    Cheers, Margaret Eagers, EO
