Canadian Medical Assistance Teams Annual General Meeting Cancellation

Important Update to  AGM Webcast Scheduled for November 17, 2013 at 3pm ET

As you know, CMAT has deployed to the Philippines in response to Typhoon Haiyan. We currently have a four member Assessment Team on the ground near Cebu, Philippines, and a 14 member medical team departing to Cebu on Sunday, November 17th 2013. Two of our Board members, Deborah Exelby  and Valerie Rzepka are on the Assessment Team, and two more Board members, Kate Auger and Dr. J. Rashad Chin,  are leading Team 1 to Cebu on Sunday, November 17, 2013. As a result, much of the business of an AGM will not be able to move forward, and we will reschedule that business to a later date when the complete Board is back in Canada.

We would like to move forward with the broadcast at the scheduled time, however, and provide a general update on CMAT activity, and a specific update on this current deployment to the Philippines.

Please visit this website shortly before 3pm ET on November 17th, for a URL for you to follow to view our broadcast.
