President's Report

Martin Mills

Welcome to the first AARE newsletter of the year. The year has started well for the Association. We hope that the same applies to you. This is also my first President’s report for the AARE newsletter. It is a great honour and privilege to represent the Association for which I have a deep fondness, stemming from my own postgraduate days.
