CAMDR 2020 October 15-18 Edmonton, AB
Dear Members and Supporters of CAMDR,
As we enter the holiday season and the year draws to a close, we can reflect back on all that we have accomplished over the past 12 months; our 5th year as a national association. Our membership continues to grow across the country as those working in the industry seek information, education and training to promote patient safety in our health facilities. Our partnerships with the leading vendors for reprocessing, and infection prevention and control has thrived as they support our mission, promote our message and help us expand as a national voice. And the networking and collaboration with other associations at the provincial, national and international level have strengthened our position in the field of medical device reprocessing as we stand as a united front for quality patient care.
At the beginning of the year we launched our new website, providing a more professional and informative resource for our members and potential members to access details on the association itself, education modules, and upcoming events. Our newsletter continues to provide interesting articles of current news and trending topics with the input from our Provincial Advisors. And we just completed an incredibly successful conference, our 3rd as an association, in October in beautiful Halifax, Nova Scotia where we saw a huge number of sponsors and attendees participate in the 4-day long event.
I am truly honored to be the President of CAMDR, and am excited to lead the association into 2019 as we continue to build on the successes of previous years. On behalf of my fellow Board members, I wish you, your family and friends a very Happy Holiday season, and a healthy and Happy New Year.
