I've been incredibly proud of our work this year although do regret being unable to get out and speak to members as I had intended at the start of the year - as much as I have enjoyed connecting with you virtually. One thing I have been able to do more regularly is congratulate those who have become chartered. We're on track to have one of our busiest chartership years in terms of the numbers of practitioners taking part. We have also had the most assessment days and are adding more to meet demand.

I have said it many times this year, but anyone who puts themselves through the rigorous process of getting chartered and evidencing their professional and ethical standards deserves huge praise for committing to their own development and for driving our profession forward. Many congratulations to Stuart, Rachel, Kaja, Gemma and Maria.
