On behalf of the College Board of Directors, it gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the 2017 ACIPC International Conference.
ACIPC 2017 promises a wealth of interest as we tackle the challenges and embrace the opportunities for the future of our profession. Held at the National Convention Centre, Canberra, ACIPC 2017 will broker new dimensions and frontiers in education, research and practice in infection prevention and control as we together prevent and control infection in our communities.
And where better to do so than in Canberra, Australia's national capital. Whether it's world-class food & wine, iconic national treasures or landmarks, everything Canberra has to offer is in short reach.
We thank you for attending and trust you will enjoy what promises to be a professionally and socially fulfilling few days in Canberra.
