“Great organisations are shaped by the collective passion and dedication of their members. Together, we pave the path of progress and create a brighter future for the AIPM. Your involvement and commitment make all the difference in our journey of excellence.” -Dr Darius Danesh, CEO of AIPM

Dear Valuable Members and Volunteers,

I want to begin by expressing how essential you all are to the AIPM. Your dedication and contributions as members and volunteers have been instrumental in shaping our organisation and driving positive change. As a member-based organisation, we highly value your active involvement and acknowledge the significant impact you have on our mission.

I am delighted to share with you that we are currently undergoing an organisational review, aiming to enhance our policies, membership services, and the roles and responsibilities of our chapters and committees. Our ultimate goal is to strengthen member engagement and elevate the quality of services we provide to each of you, our esteemed members.

Throughout this process, I have had the privilege of engaging with various committees, members, and volunteers, conducting one-on-one discussions with our esteemed Chapter Presidents since my commencement as the CEO. These interactions have been instrumental in identifying challenges and exploring innovative ways to bolster our chapter support and enhance the services we offer to our valuable members. We will continue collaborating closely with our Chapters to ensure the effective implementation of these initiatives, and we will communicate these opportunities with all members once we have completed the review.

In our relentless pursuit of excellence, we are carefully reviewing and updating our operational matters to ensure they optimise our organisation and ultimately benefit our valued members. This encompassing review involves a thorough examination of our current policies and procedures, membership and Chapter services, events, workshops, and more. We believe these reviews are essential to ensuring that we are best equipped to serve your needs and interests.

To each of you who has stood by the organisation during this ongoing transitional phase, I extend my heartfelt gratitude. Your unwavering dedication has played a pivotal role in achieving several milestones in a remarkably short period. Together, we have accomplished remarkable success, and I cannot overstate the significance of your commitment.

As we stride confidently into the future, I wholeheartedly believe that active member engagement is the cornerstone of shaping our organisation’s destiny. This is your organisation, and your valuable insights and feedback on proposed changes are of paramount importance. We strongly encourage all members to share their perspectives and suggestions, helping us further elevate our services, enhance membership benefits, and elevate the impact of our events.

We acknowledge that the process of improvement takes time and careful consideration, and we genuinely appreciate your patience and support during these reviews and transformation. Our dedication to crafting an even more exceptional AIPM remains steadfast, and with your continued support, we are certain to achieve remarkable heights.

In closing, I want to emphasise that each of you, our members and volunteers, are at the heart of this organisation. Your passion, insights, and commitment drive us forward and inspire us daily. Your dedication to our shared vision is a source of immense pride and inspiration as we continue our journey of progress and achievement. If you have any comments, concerns, or suggestions, please do not hesitate to reach out to us at info@aipm.com.au. Your voice matters profoundly, and we eagerly anticipate your invaluable input.

With utmost respect and appreciation.
