The COVID-19 pandemic is sweeping through our nations with devastating effects on health that are escalating daily.  The impacts are severe and widespread - financially, vocationally, socially and personally, causing major disruption to everyday activities and people’s well-being.

ASSBI, like many other organisations, has had to cancel the annual conference for the first time in 43 years of the Society.  At the same time, BRAINSPaN has sprung into action, providing a vital conduit for communication and sharing of resources.  These include fact sheets from the World Health Organization, Australian Department of Health, National Disability Insurance Scheme, and the Australian Psychological Society tips for mental health, together with ASSBI Resources for telehealth delivery (Making the Most of Your Memory; TBIconneCT) and the Aphasia Centre for Research Excellence healthcare communication supports.

During these difficult and uncertain times, the ASSBI Executive will be continuing its activities.  We send our heartfelt wishes to members, colleagues, people with brain impairment and their families and hope that you stay well and remain safe.

2020 assbi conference

It is with great regret that I let you know that the ASSBI Executive has taken the very difficult decision to cancel the upcoming ASSBI conference in Perth in May 2020. The uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 outbreak and the various travel restrictions placed on hospital and university staff make running the event untenable. 

We are very grateful to the Pan Pacific Hotel in Perth for letting us cancel without further financial penalty.  It would have been a significant hit to our funds to cover cancellation costs.

My thanks to the conference convenors, Michelle Kelly and Janet Wagland, for all their hard work in organising the event thus far, and to Barby Singer and her helpers for putting together the consumer event.

My sincere thanks to Margaret Eagers our CEO and PCO, for her invaluable assistance during this critical period. 

On behalf of the ASSBI Executive, I wish you and your loves ones good health and hope to see you in Melbourne in July 2021.

We have now released our webinar series for 9 webinars to take place between now and the end of the year.

If there is anyone you would like to see present a webinar please get in touch with us.

Best wishes Robyn Tate,
President of ASSBI
