Message from the President

Greetings ACS colleagues and friends,


If you are considering applying for Accreditation maybe it's time to research what's involved, the requirements and consider what material you would supply with your application as the next Accreditation assessments will take place at our National HQ in the second half of the year in 2017 and all submissions must be received by your local branch between July 1st and July 31st 2017 and submissions will not be accepted after July 31st 2017.

If your work is regularly recognised with State and National Gold ACS Awards then maybe you could consider applying and keep in mind that your Branch Presidents along with myself are always happy to discuss submissions with applicants, but please don't leave it till the last minute as to go through submissions does take some time.

I want to reinforce that if it is your intention to apply this year or in the future, you should check your membership status, as only Full Members of three years standing may apply.

I cannot emphasise strongly enough that Active members must monitor their own membership status yearly, and upgrade to Full when ready to do so in order to be eligible to apply for Accreditation.

If you are ready to upgrade to Full Membership please contact your Branch Treasurer, or if you believe you should have upgraded to Full some time ago, again please contact your Branch Treasurer. There is no allowance for upgrading, you must serve the allocated membership time in your current category.

Miller Camera Support are are one of our longest and most supportive National sponsors. The annual Bob Miller Technical and Innovation Achievement Award is now open for nominees. Please put your thinking caps on and nominate a worthy candidate for this prestigious award.

Until next time

Ron Johanson OAM ACS
National President
