President's Message - 2022
Thank you for your ongoing membership. We hope you’ve taken full advantage of the benefits available to you as a CAS member and I encourage you to review the benefits chart
to ensure you’re getting the most out of your membership. Your membership ensures that CAS continues to serve as a strong and effective society.
We are truly proud of the incredible work of our community, even while navigating the uncertain landscape of an ongoing pandemic. Despite the new and ongoing challenges, anesthesiologists have continued to serve with grace and care, providing excellence in patient care and safety. We are proud to serve as your national Society and look forward to building on our success in 2022.
We opened the year with a highly requested member exclusive online session on peer support and were pleased to have a considerable turnout. In addition, new online modules to support your certification maintenance were rolled out over the course of the year, and new partnerships were developed to provide additional education for 2021 and into 2022.
Of course, this year’s Annual Meeting was a hit, providing a rich and comprehensive virtual experience for a diverse group from Canada and abroad. Now, excitement is already building around the first in-person Annual Meeting in three years (June 24th
, Halifax). I’m looking forward to learning and celebrating with you in person! We are also looking forward to building the educational content for the meeting based on your feedback in the recent member needs assessment. We are a member driven Society and will continue to work to meet your needs and support the incredibly valuable work you do into 2022 and beyond.
I encourage you to share any issues or concerns with us, and to provide guidance as to our direction. CAS is here to be your voice and the voice of the anesthesiology profession in Canada. All ideas, questions and feedback are welcome. Contact me at email@example.com
