June 2023 Newsletter

New Website - Public view is now live!

Following many months of development and testing, we can now officially launch the new look MSA website.  We're excited about the refreshed look and feel, the updated content, plus many improved features for membership administration, events and content management.  The site is built on the WordPress platform that is more user friendly than the old site, and as a result now have additional site admins trained.

Please browse to URL https://metrology.asn.au/

The final transition of all membership data and set up of the membership interface is underway so members can't log in yet, but once this is completed we will send a notification to our members with instructions to update passwords and check their subscriptions status.

We will continue to review content and ensure we keep our new site up to date and relevant.  Any suggestions or comments are welcome to msaonline@metrology.asn.au.

You will find we have added to the Events page the MSA2023 photo gallery and conference video, so click below to check this out or see if you can navigate to it from the homepage.

MSA2023 - Photo Gallery and Conference Video

 

MSA2025 - Call for Action

Following the successful event in Wellington (see the link below to the photos and video), there is strong interest to hold our next conference in Sydney or a surrounding area.  We're now calling for NSW members to form a local organising committee to get the planning for MSA2025 underway.  If you are keen to be involved and have a few ideas about hosting an event then get in touch today.  The committee will support with mentoring and guidelines from past event organizers. Get in touch now by emailing secretary@metrology.asn.au

 

MSA Projects - here's what is happening!

MSA History Project

We are 30 years in existence, so have started compiling the history of our society. Once this work is complete we'll have a page on our website dedicated to this.  In the meantime, we need your help with some gaps.  For those of you with good memories and/or anything documented, can you help with this question?

  • Where were the conferences held between 1994 and 2004?

Do you want to be involved with collating the MSA history and/or do you have any historical information or photos? - if so please email secretary@metrology.asn.au

 

MSA Registration and bank updates

The Metrology Society of Australasia Inc. is a registered society with ASIC - Australian Securities & Investments Commission.  This ensures we operate under the appropriate protocols of an incorporated society.  We have undertaken a review of our registration and updated relevant information. This review has also covered off changes in our banking details and delegated financial authorities.  

 

MSA Education 

There are a number of initiatives underway in the education space.  It's long been an issue finding talent who have the right skills and aptitude to step into metrology careers. It's widely researched and reported that the next generation need exposure to STEM subjects at primary age to spark an interest in longer term learning.  There are a number of initiatives underway that support many different layers of metrology learning.

  • MSA Lecture Series - Developed as a resource for the teaching of metrology in applied sciences at a tertiary education level. The aim is to help applied science and engineering students develop a sufficient understanding of metrology, to enable them to make and recognize high-quality measurements, to interact appropriately with other professional users of measurements, and to recognize and interact with the key elements of their national quality infrastructure. The lectures emphasize the metrology principles and philosophy applicable to any measurement. Ready now for any interested tertiary institutes.
  • Measurement online technician micro credentials - Under development in collaboration with NZ organisation Real World Education and a cohort of participating Labs, these micro credential courses will be an entry level intro to some basic concepts of laboratory and calibration practices across a number of technical areas. First course should be ready to launch early 2024.
  • Science Roadshow metrology demos - In collaboration with MSL in NZ, the Science Roadshow is aimed at Primary aged children and visits schools around the NZ promoting STEM and providing young learners the opportunity to play and connect with hands-on demonstrations.¬† A metrology demo is under development.

 

Members Discussion Forum

For those attending events and conferences etc. you will realise the value in the discussions with a range of experts and informed members from all areas of Metrology.  We'd love to encourage a continuation of these conversations via our website discussion forum.  So if you have a question and don't know who to contact, why not strike up a chat in our members discussion forum.  What if you're not a member?  Consider joining - we welcome membership applications so you can access discussion forums, receive event discounts, job opportunities and get involved in some excellent MSA initiatives to raise Metrology awareness across Australasia.
