Plans are underway to commemorate the 20th birthday of the ABMA at the 17th National Conference to be held in Perth in 1994. Attaining such milestones usually prompts, in addition to ceremony and celebration, interest in history, roots, trends and resolutions for the future. There may be curiosity about what is being celebrated. It is easy enough to count back to the first National Conference in 1978 to arrive at the number 17, but the 20th birthday is not so obvious. My purpose here is to assuage that curiosity and give my version of the events that have followed.
