|1. CAC Annual Meeting|
Those of you who were at last year's AGM in Vancouver will remember that we instituted the custom of having a brief Act of Remembrance on that occasion for colleagues who had passed away during the previous year. I would like to carry on this tradition in Fredericton, and ask you, therefore, to send me information on any such person who should be mentioned on this occasion. I shall be leaving for Fredericton on May 8, in order to attend the AAH meeting, in advance of the CAC, and am unsure if I shall be able to get access to my e-mail from the conference.
