Merger of Australian Sarcoma Group (ASG) and Australasian Sarcoma Study Group (ASSG)
Over the last year, the Australian Sarcoma Group (ASG) and Australasian Sarcoma Study Group (ASSG) have been working towards a proposed merger of the two organisations.
We are delighted to advise that members and the board of directors of ASSG and the ASG have approved the merger with a new constitution and name, at our recent meetings in Perth. The new organisation will be known as the Australia and New Zealand Sarcoma Association (ANZSA).
ANZSA will remain a non-profit charitable organisation, with the purpose of improving the outcomes of patients affected by sarcoma and related tumours through research, education and advocacy.
We look forward to the transition to our new name and to sharing our new logo in the coming months.
We are both excited by the strength of the united group and the increased ability to better serve the sarcoma community.
