Message from the ASO Chair

October 2020

It’s fair to say that my first year in post as Chair of the Board of Trustees for ASO has not been anything like I had anticipated. As with many others, we experienced an unprecedented impact of COVID-19 that no one could have forecasted last September. I’ve attempted to summarise how this has impacted on ASO and its wider community below.
