Note from the Treasurer

The CAHS Executive would like to thank everyone who has responded in the past couple of months with renewals and donations. Your attentiveness and generosity is much appreciated and very helpful. Nevertheless, we are not out of the woods yet. As mentioned before, the CAHS has maintained 100% of its operations on the Journal, the website, the e-newsletter, and the behind-the-scenes administration - all of which incur costs. The income sent to the CAHS for renewals and donations between March and July 2020 remains less than 50% of what was received by the CAHS in 2019 over the same period of time. Unfortunately, this decrease in income over our first and second quarters will affect our ability to carry out our operations over the rest of the year. Specifically, we still 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. Furthermore, one of our insurance policies is due early in September - we need additional funds in the bank account in order to cover that cost as well.

We ask 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. 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 maintain our bills, website, and Journal production. You can donate online at our website (paying with your credit card or PayPal) at the following link: Do you know of a corporation that would be interested in, or is in a position to, support the CAHS through a Corporate membership (form here) or a sponsorship donation? It would be greatly appreciated if you could reach out to your corporate donor network and advocate supporting the CAHS financially.

Cordially Yours,
~Dr Rachel Lea Heide
