As 2021 draws to a close most of you will be in the midst of preparations for this festive season. This year has been another unprecedented, chaotic, and extremely busy time for all. We know the Holiday season is going to continue to be very different again this year, but our appreciation for you, our CAMDR members, remains as strong as ever. Given the continued unprecedented challenges we have all faced in 2021, the CAMDR Board of Directors, Provincial Advisors, and Events Management is thankful and truly grateful to all of you, the members, to help ensure safe patient care. I would also like to thank the corporate sponsors and vendor partners who provide continued support and resources to contribute to our thriving CAMDR association. You are all our heroes who have gotten us through thus far, once again.
This year the ongoing pandemic is still impacting many holiday plans not only because of continued travel restrictions and the need for social distancing but for how our daily routine continues to change. Some of you- like me-feel uncomfortable about returning to what we once viewed as normal, prior to the pandemic. This holiday season is unlike any other, to cap off a year unlike any other. Throughout this season, and as we move into a new and hopefully better 2022, we wish you and your families, moments of peace amid the difficulties, connections with family and friends even if they can’t all be in person, the warmth of memories from holidays past, and wonderful glimpses of the joy that still lives under the surface.
I hope you will take a moment to reflect on the difference you have all made this year as you celebrate the holiday season, regardless of how you celebrate it. And, that you will join me in ringing in the New Year with anticipation of all that we will accomplish together in 2022.
Thank you for your partnership and support over the past year. On behalf of my fellow Board members, we hope that you and your loved ones have a Happy and Healthy Holiday Season and a Happy New start in 2022.
