We are pleased to announce that AQMLM membership has now passed the 100 mark, including several regional groups!

We have decided to extend the deadline for early registration and payment for the Inaugural Symposium to Friday 16th October 2009. This is to allow those who only become aware of the Symposium at the IBMS Conference to take advantage of this offer.

We now have close to 60 members and have received enquiries from two potential groups. Organisations are also approaching us to put links to them on our websites.

AQMLM now has a registered address which should be used for all written communications (note we would still prefer to work paper-free whenever possible). This is:

PO Box 15252
B16 6HD

Later on in the summer, we will be creating the 'Members Only' area of the website, which will have secure login, document sharing and download facilities.

News_002 16th June 2009

We are rapidly approaching our 50th membership registration, invoices are now being sent out, and, as soon as payment is received, a welcome letter and AQMLM terms of reference will be emailed.

This is a very encouraging start and bodes well for the future.
