This is an invitation; but unusually long; so I’ll explain. QPMPA is dormant for the last 3 or 4 years and as a revival measure I’ve been selected as the new president. I’m convalescing from a spinal surgery and my age restricts an active presidency. But I am willingly shouldering the responsibility and with your support, we together can bring in a positive note to the depressing professional conditions. If we look back we can see that if any of our professional bodies can reverse the present down-slide, it is the QPMPA.
