AOTP Annual General MeetingDear Members,

Following the extraordinary general meeting last night there was a majority decision in favour of the AOTP to dissolve and any leftover funds to be used for education in WA for Anaesthetic Technicians by the AAAHP.

Although this is the end for the AOTP it is definitely not the end for Anaesthetic Technician educational events. The AAAHP have welcomed the opportunity to continue providing educational events in Western Australia. By combining the resources of the 2 organisations Anaesthetic Technicians will benefit the most by finally having a true National Organisation dedicated to education and gaining registration for our profession.

It takes dedicated hard working people to who are willing to sacrifice some of their free time to make these organisations work and provide educational events. The outgoing AOTP committee would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has given up their spare time and been involved with the AOTP over the years.

As previously mentioned all past and present members will be contacted and offered AAAHP membership paid for by the AOTP in the coming weeks.

Kind Regards

AOTP Committee
