The CCA's annual general meeting was held today and was well attended (no surprise,
considering that lunch was served during the meeting). Reports were provided by various executive members and interest group chairs. Rick Gray reported that CCA dues have increased this year to $90 - still a bargain. Finances are still in the black overall, though an increase in travel costs last year to the conference in St. John's has resulted in a deficit for 2005. Membership for 2005 increased by about 17% over the previous year. This is obviously an improvement but we are still not back to the levels we had about 5 or 6 years ago.
New executive members include James Boxall as Vice President, Edith Punt as Chair of the History of Cartography IG, Elise Pietroniro as Chair of Map Design and Use IG, Penny Hutton as Chair of the Analytical Cartography and GIS IG and Alberta Wood as Secretary.
