Firstly, thank you and the ACORN team for yesterday's study day in Darwin. I found it inspiring to meet such intelligent and driven individuals who represent and strongly support nurses and the nursing profession.

Yourself and Paula really resonated with my personal thoughts and aspirations for my current and future career. You two have motivated and reassured me that there are a variety of opportunities to progress and develop within the nursing profession.

I think your idea on being able to tap into the educational day webinars is wonderful for those who can't make it but honestly seeing you all in person and being able to interact one on one with everyone is irreplaceable and an integral element for current and future members (in my opinion).

Kindest regards
