Dear CAME Members,

We are seeking to make CAME-ACEM more directly useful to you and to make it part of your everyday working lives. To that end we will be sending out a weekly email of thoughts, ideas and suggestions from CAME members across the country. We hope you will find this both stimulating and useful and we invite all CAME members to submit a short piece on something they're interested in, like this one today. I am working with NOSM's Rachel Ellaway on this initiative so please address any comments or questions to the two of us. We can be reached via email at and
