Dear Friends and Colleagues

In the season of gratitude and goodwill may I start by thanking all of you for the support and often sound advice that has enabled the growth and enhancement of our world-wide organisation during the past year.

Many of you are deserving of special recognition and you can be assured that every effort will be made during 2024 to visit you and your associations to provide reciprocal support and show that appreciation.

Amongst the host of values of belonging to ISTMA World none ranks higher than our network, during the 'World Conference' in Cape Town during November, that network was strengthening and taken to a new level, business opportunities were created, multitudes of ideas were exchanged, common interests and targets were identified and above all enduring relationships were established and consolidated in an environment of mutual trust and respect.

The 2024 ISTMA World calendar is both exciting and ambitious with planned visits to all continents, regional and international reunions and the expansion of our Global footprint. It is my sincere wish to meet and greet as many of you personally in 2024.

May I now take the opportunity of wishing you and your loved ones a Blessed Christmas and a Happy New Year and above all that you stay safe.

Kind Best Wishes
Bob Williamson
