Note from the Treasurer:

CAHS is Experiencing Shortage of Funds

While the shutdowns to decrease the spread of COVID-19 have sadly affected many jobs across Canada (and the world), the CAHS has been able to continue at 100% operations since our work on the Journal and the website can be done entirely through electronic communications, Although our volunteers’ workload has not decreased, we have seen an alarming decrease in funding since the start of the pandemic: the income sent to the CAHS for renewals and donations between March and June 2020 has been less than 50% of what was received by the CAHS in 2019 over the same period of time. Also, with the cancellation of our annual convention, we lost the opportunity to run the silent auction and sell convention merchandise. Unfortunately, this decrease in income over our first and second quarters is affecting our ability to carry out our operations over the rest of the year. Specifically, we do not have the cash in our bank account to pay for the printing and mailing of the next two Journals which our editor and editorial committee have been working on over the past weeks.

As mentioned in the May 2020 newsletter, the CAHS is not-for-profit, so our membership and donation income is very important for maintaining enough money in the bank to keep up with our monthly and quarterly bills. We need our members who still need to renew for 2018, 2019, and 2020 to do so as soon as possible. Even when people are behind in renewing for a year or more, the CAHS has had 100% of its operating costs for 2018 and 2019, and even now in 2020. Perpetual costs include maintaining and expanding our website; producing, printing, and mailing out the CAHS Journal; mandatory insurance policies; website domain and maintenance; and fees for the preparation of our annual audit and CRA submissions. Not having your renewal money means we had to dip into the cash float we try to keep as a cushion in our bank account, and now we find we simply do not have enough money in the bank to pay bills we know will be coming shortly.

You can renew online (paying with your credit card or PayPal) at the following link: If you would prefer to mail a cheque or credit card number for your renewal or donation, you could can download the PDF version of the membership form here or the donation form here. If you choose to mail your renewal, we ask that you email our treasurer (Rachel Heide) for her home address, which will ensure quicker processing of your renewal. You may also email her to inquire as to your membership status. 

Donations are also an important part of our funding streams. We would greatly appreciate it if you could consider donating to the CAHS to help us with our current funding shortage so that we can maintain our bills, website, and Journal production.
