Welcome to Headlines!

This is the first issue of our redesigned quarterly newsletter formerly called The Bulletin. We hope you enjoy the new format, and layout. HeadLines is only one part of the Communication Modernization Strategy undertaken by the College.

 

President’s Message

It is hard to believe, that just a few months ago, in the depths of winter we were thinking about the coming summer, travel, relaxation and a pleasant break from the routines of winter. And then it began: the spread of COVID-19 and the dramatic changes that each of us has had to face both professionally and in our personal lives.

 

Information from the Practice Advice Service

As might be expected, about half of the inquiries received from members over the past many months relate to practicing in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. The evolving nature of these questions is reflected in the advice provided by the College in email messages to members.

 

Council Highlights – June 12, 2020

Since the March meeting there have been a number of changes to the College Council.

We gratefully acknowledge their involvement and contributions.
