Letter from President – 2023

Dear CLIMOA Members,

I write to you after a very successful meeting in Ottawa. It was our first since the COVID-19 pandemic began and it was also our 75th Annual Scientific Meeting.

I would like to thank:

  • My predecessor, Dr. Antoinette Le Roux;
  • The Scientific Program Committee, especially the Co-Chairs – Dr. Georgiana Willwerth-Pascutiu and Dr. François Grondin;
  • Our sponsors – Canada Life, Munich Re, Blue Cross, Hannover Re, RGA, Sun Life, Swiss Re, Co-operators, Wawanesa Life and Desjardins;
  • The speakers;
  • All attendees for their support.

Some updates:

  • Next Annual Scientific Meeting – location and date TBD but watch for more information. We are considering some changes, e.g., a shorter or joint conference.
  • Webinars – watch out for more of these, kindly organized by Dr. Antoinette Le Roux. They have been fantastic educational sessions on very interesting topics.
  • New membership categories – see https://climoa.com/membership/ for further details. Affiliate membership is open to non-physicians.
  • Linkedin group – https://www.linkedin.com/groups/13535937/. Please apply to join. It is open to anyone eligible to apply for membership in CLIMOA.
