TALM is a professional association for all Laboratory Managers in Tasmania. Founded in 1974, its primary purpose is to provide an organised group to unite us. In doing this, we promote the interchange of ideas and methods, provide educational programs for professional growth and enrichment and attempt to enhance the status of Laboratory Managers.
We meet as a whole at least two times a year, we have a Midyear Conference and also an Annual General Meeting at the end of the year, at which we also have a workshop of some sort. Information and news are published in our Newsletters.
We encourage liaison with interstate Laboratory Manager organisations. Links to these can be found on our website.
Currently there are 24 independent school Laboratory Managers and 64 state school Laboratory Managers across Tasmania. About half of these are members of TALM. We warmly welcome new members. If you would like to become a member, please use the registration form on our membership page.
