Notes From the CEA

1998 CEA Meetings

During the winter of 1997, the CEA conducted a mail ballot on the question of holding the CEA Meetings outside of the Learneds, which is now the Congress. We received 150 ballots with 120 being in favour of separate Meetings. This is a clear mandate to try separate Meeting. Recall that the ballot did not specify what year to begin separate Meetings and the separate Meetings are an experiment which we would try for two years. After the experiment, we would re-assess whether we wanted to continue with the Learneds.

In St. John's there was extensive discussion at the two Executive Council Meetings and the Annual General Meeting. In addition, Parkin, Boadway, Riddell and Denny met with representatives of HSSFC. The latter would very much like us to attend the first HSSFC Congress in Ottawa in 1998.

The decision was made to participate in the Ottawa Congress in 1998 and to hold a separate CEA Meeting in 1999.

Information about the 1998 Congress can be found at the HSSFC site, http://www.hssfc.ca

Any comments or questions about the CEA decision should be sent to Michael Denny at denny@chass.utoronto.ca.
