Thank you from QMWS President [December 2022]

As we approach the end of 2022, I would like to thank you all on behalf of QMWS, for a wonderful year.

It was lovely so many familiar and new faces could attend, and we would like to thank Queensland X-Ray for sponsoring our Christmas party (Watch the video). We hope you have a wonderful festive season and we look forward to seeing you at our 2023 AGM on 23rd February. Please don’t forget to sign up or renew your membership.
