Full Text: The ASSA Exco would like to wish all Society members compliments of the season.

As of October 2007 ASSA had a paid up membership of 455 (with 46 subscriptions unpaid). New members and those lost to emigration etc. balance each other out. Mrs Sue Parkes is doing an admirable job under difficult circumstances in ensuring that the database is kept current.

It was decided by the presidents of the various surgical societies at a meeting on 25 May 2007 that a combined secretariat would be most efficient. However, the implementation of this decision is proving to be a little elusive. A final decision regarding the site of the combined offices has to be made and a suitable person to run the secretariat has to be identified.
