Welcome to the October issue of RSM Engage, the digital magazine for members of the Royal Society of Medicine.

In this issue we mark the launch of the RSM’s new strategy with an interview with President Professor Roger Kirby and Chief Executive Michele Acton and by hearing from members of the RSM community who describe in their own words what the RSM means to them.

We welcome over 30 new presidents to our specialty sections, highlight new arrangements for the awarding of CPD for RSM meetings, and report on important new research, published by the Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine.

There’s great news for all RSM members, who can now take advantage of free access to the majority of RSM webinars of up to two hours long.

And celebration is the order of the day in other news as we mark the 100th birthday of RSM member Dr Marjory Foyle, and congratulate the RSM members who have been recognised in the HSJ’s list of most influential minority ethnic health leaders.

Finally, if you’re planning a trip to London, there are some offers at the RSM’s hotel, Domus Medica, providing exceptional value for money for the Autumn season.
