ARMS Wrap-Up - 2023

Call for ARMS Honour Roll Submissions

The Society recognises the importance of members who volunteer their time, skills and expertise to support the delivery of high-quality  services for the greater benefit of all members. 

In recognition of our volunteer members, the ARMS Board recently agreed to publish an  "Honour Roll"- This is a listing on the ARMS website which formally acknowledges the contributions made by individual members.

To help populate the "Honour Roll" we invite all ARMS members who have made a contribution to the Society, no matter how big or small!!  Examples include, active involvement on the ARMS Board, Chapter Committees, Special Interest Groups, Standing Committees, conference committees or as an authorised Training Fellow, just to name a few!

The Society values the ongoing support of all volunteer members and this is a small way to recognise you and your valued contributions!
