The Committee of the South Australian Branch of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Ophthalmologists invites you to attend our biennial Scientific Congress, to be held on the weekend of 9th and 10th August in Darwin.

This meeting will focus on contemporary practices and will revisit important practice of the past which remain valid today.

The committee will involve specialists from NT and SA, and the invited speakers will be suitably chosen for their specialty interest.

The venue will be the Darwin Convention Centre. The SA and NT branch last hosted the scientific meeting in Darwin in 2005. This event remains one of the most successful meetings we have held. 

Seed Events, represented by Janine and Lejla, are our conference organisers. They have worked with our committee on several conferences in the past including the 2005 Darwin meeting and will provide you with a very prompt and professional service.

We look forward to an excellent scientific meeting, and to your support in making it a success.

Yours Sincerely,
Dr Mark Chehade
Chairman, SA RANZCO
