    Message from the Chair

    Dear Members and Partners,

    In my last message to you, I wrote that 2020 was a challenging year for us all, both personally and professionally, and I shared my fervent hope that the commitment and hard work of front-line practitioners, public health officials, scientists and researchers around the world would be rewarded in 2021. I also noted with great regret that the Management Committee made the decision to postpone the 2020 IAMRA conference, which was to have taken place in Johannesburg in September 2020, and I assured you that we will present an in-person conference again when it is safe and feasible to do so.

    In many ways and for many of us, the challenges of 2020 are continuing in 2021, but with the development of vaccines, continued care and vigilance, and the dedicated commitment of healthcare professionals, I do hope that 2021 will end better than it started.

    I do have some good news for you! From October 12-14, 2021 IAMRA will be hosting a virtual conference with the theme: Supporting a workforce under pressure – the regulator’s role.

    We want the conference to be as accessible as possible. Organizations, both member and non-member, will pay a single registration fee, which will entitle all their staff, board/council members, etc. to attend as little or as much of the conference as they wish.

    As IAMRA has members all around the world, the conference start time will be different on each day so that the majority of attendees will have at least one day when it will be convenient for them to attend the conference ‘live’. All attendees will have the option to attend ‘live’ on every day of the conference if they wish.

    All conference sessions will be recorded so that attendees can watch recordings of sessions at their leisure if they are unable to attend the live event. The conference content will be different on each day.  

    Further announcements, including a call for abstracts will follow soon.

    Just a reminder that all of the webinars that have been presented in the last year can be viewed on the IAMRA website. Our webinars will pause after our event in May, in preparation for the virtual conference.

    Despite the continuing challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, IAMRA’s community continues to expand. Please join me in welcoming our newest member:

    Please stay safe, and accept my heartfelt appreciation for your continuing support of IAMRA.
