Fellow members:

Well here we are, just a few short days from the official first day of Fall! What an exciting time of year with the seasons changing and a lot of upcoming amendments within CAIW!!

Your CAIW Executive Board is already working hard to make changes to the criteria of some awards as well as the addition of a new and exciting award. So stay tuned for further updates in this regard. We are sorry to bid adieu to the Essay Contest after 43 years; however, we are committed to listening to our members and there was a very strong vote to discontinue this award. If you have any ideas or things you would like to see, please do not hesitate to let your CAIW Director know so those items can be discussed at the National level.

We have Nova Scotia, Calgary and Newfoundland working very hard planning Convention for the next three years with an altered format beginning in 2019. Perhaps your Local Association would like to consider hosting our AGM and National Convention in 2021? We will be asking for bids at our Annual General Meeting in Halifax in June, 2018. It would be wonderful to have another location selected for 2021!!!

It has been a very hectic summer; however, I look forward to planning on visiting as many Associations as I can manage throughout this term. If your Association has a special evening or event planned, please have your Director give me a shout to see if I am able to plan a visit around that time.

Until next time, Happy Autumn!!

Yours in fellowship,

Deb MacDougall, CIP
CAIW President
