CAMA Conference

CAMA CANCELS 2022 ANNUAL CONFERENCE - MAY 30 TO JUNE 1, 2022 IN REGINA, SASKATCHEWAN

A MESSAGE FROM THE CAMA PRESIDENT

We sent a survey to our members to gather information on planned attendance at CAMA’s 2022 Annual Conference scheduled to take place from May 30 to June 1, 2022 in Regina.  We had an overwhelming response from our members with the majority of them indicating that they are unable to commit to attending an in-person national conference at this time.  The Board looked at all options, weighed member feedback, and determined that the feasibility of hosting a Conference with the current uncertainty of the pandemic would be extremely difficult.  Therefore, CAMA’s 2022 Annual Conference has been cancelled.

We are mindful that the CAMA Annual Conference is a key benefit for CAMA members and are saddened to have to once again cancel such a valuable professional development and networking opportunity for our profession.  Our goal now is to focus on our return to the Deerhurst Resort in 2023.  We want to make this Conference “bigger and better” than we had originally planned back in 2020.  

CAMA would like to acknowledge the significant efforts, resources and commitments undertaken to date by staff, the Conference Planning Committee, and the City of Regina team.  

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ON THE CANCELLATION

What if you are a 2022 Long Service Award Recipient?
Recipients with twenty years of service or more are usually presented with their awards at a Luncheon at the Conference. If you are a recipient, you will receive your pin by Canada Post sometime in April 2022. A list of the recipients will also be posted to our website as per our usual practice.

What if you submitted a nomination to the 2022 CAMA Awards of Excellence Program?
If you are a winner of the 2022 CAMA Awards of Excellence there will be a virtual ceremony held sometime in May 2022 since we will not have the opportunity to showcase the winners at the luncheon at the Conference.

What about the election of the 2022-2023 Board of Directors?
If an election for the two vacant positions on the CAMA Board of Directors (Québec and Newfoundland/Labrador) is required, it will still take place as planned from May 2-6, 2022 as this is an e-voting process.   The results will be announced at the virtual Annual General Meeting.

What about the Annual General Meeting?
The Annual General Meeting will take place virtually on Tuesday, May 31, 2022 at 11:30 a.m. EST.   Details on how to register will be sent to all regular voting members.

We will continue to update members frequently through direct email, social media, our webpage, and e-brief as new plans are developed, however please feel free to reach out to Jennifer Goodine, Executive Director at any time (admin@camacam.ca) or by calling 506-460-2135. 

Thank you for your understanding of this difficult decision. 

Sincerely,
 
Jack Benzaquen
CAMA President
