CAP-ACP Changes Secretariat Service Provider
Wed, 12 Sep 2012

The CAP-ACP announces its engagement of Events Management as the provider for the Association's Secretariat services.

Events Management (EM), working out of Kingston, ON under the direction of Ms. Elizabeth Hooper, has successfully managed a number of societies, including the Canadian Society of Clinical Chemists, who provided an excellent recommendation. EM had been the Secretariat of CAP-ACP prior to our move to Royal College Association Management (RCAM), the "administrative arm" of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons, in 1995.

CAP-ACP has greatly appreciated the enormous expertise and contributions of Ms Danièle Saintonge, the RCAM manager assigned to our organization. However, the total administrative charges have overwhelmed our resources and have threatened the financial viability of our society. As a result, we embarked on a search to find another management provider. This move will cut the CAP-ACP administrative expenses by at least 50%.

The RCPSC has been informed about the change and the process of transition has begun. Our relationship with the Royal College will remain strong and unchanged at all other levels. 

There is a need for a brief overlap of services, but we hope for a smooth and quick transition, under the guidance of our legal counsel and the watchful eye of our CAP-ACP secretary treasurer, Dr Brian Cummings, who is also a Chartered Accountant. Watch out for the new contact information from our new manager Heather Dow, starting in mid October 2012.
