One of the challenges for metrologists and calibration laboratories in these times of ongoing COVID travel and work restrictions is accessing high quality training to support development or upskilling of staff.  NMI Australia has adapted many of its courses to operate online via Webex video conference.  NMI has asked the MSA to inform its members of the following upcoming courses:

WMD 2021 (May 20, 2021) was a great opportunity for the measurement community to come together face-to-face after an isolated 2020.  I'm sure all attendees had a special appreciation for how fortunate we were to be able to gather in Lower Hutt (NZ), Melbourne (AUS) and Sydney (AUS), while many other regions around the globe would be unable due to COVID-19.

The MSA is working to develop a series of helpful guides for members and the broader Australia/New Zealand measurement community.  The first introductory guide has now been published in the publications section of our website. 

World Metrology Day is fast approaching on the 20th of May, 2021.  Be sure to put it in your calendar, celebrate it in your workplace, and attend one of the events organised in our region.

Events for MSA Members for WMD (Thursday 20th of May, 2021):

Stay up to date with news from our community.  In our March newsletter we highlight the member survey that is contributing to our longer term planning. We also highlight the opportunity to work with Standards Australia on the technical committee for General Requirements for Reference Materials. The professional Metrologist programme is very close to launch and of course some more details about the next MSA Conference being hosted in New Zealand 19-22 September 2022.

It's important our members have a voice, so to aid future planning we are asking members to complete our survey.  Feedback from this will guide committee planning and decision making into the next few years.  We also congratulate the members of the Executive committee following the AGM last month and wish you all a very safe, happy and healthy festive season.  Read our December newsletter to find more information about the survey, the executive committee members and to read our Christmas message.
