The AAPM has been a wonderful resource, especially in the early years when I took on the Practice Manager role. I will always remember my first AAPM Conference in Melbourne – it was like someone switched on the light! I knew that with such a wealth of knowledge to call upon, I could confidently navigate my way forward.

After attending the AAPM Conference two years in a row I can honestly say that it is the one event that I truly look forward to in the year. The conferences provide me with a fresh outlook and I always return to my role with excitement to begin applying and sharing my learnings. I am now sending three of our staff members who I know will return with a new perspective and ideas to nurture our practice with.

I love the fact that the AAPM is continually pushing for better recognition of the work that PMs do and getting PMs to understand that they are professionals and not underestimate the importance of their role. I’m really pleased to be a Certified Practice Manager (CPM) and encourage others to do the same.
