CAMA is pleased to be launching its Member in Transition Toolkit during the 2019 Conference being held in Quebec City from May 27-29, 2019. CAMA recognizes the landscape of transitioned CAOs throughout Canada continues to grow. While we currently support our members in transition in a number of different ways, one of the identified work plan items in our Strategic Plan was to explore additional ways to assist members in transition.
When a CAO is experiencing the turmoil and flow of emotions that immediately follows transition, it is often difficult to even think of the resources you need and/or where to locate them quickly when you need them. This Toolkit is intended to be a support tool to provide guidance as you navigate your way through the various stages of transition and links to the resources you may need in any Province/Territory, to locate professional assistance.
CAMA struck a Committee of CAOs who have all experienced transition, and this toolkit has been developed based on their very personal experiences, and to offer our support and let you know you’re not alone if you ever find yourself in this unfortunate position. Everyone experiences transition in their own way and throughout the project we learned that often just hearing the experiences of others can be helpful.
During the launch, the consultant, Susan Shannon, who assisted the Committee with this project, will walk thru the on-line toolkit and some of your colleagues will also share their very personal stories about their transition journey.
