2009-09-23: The September 2009 CPMS newsletter does not have pages 69 or 70, but does have pages 97 and 98 as extras. This was a minor error with the page numbering. No content is missing from the newsletter and it is still 32 pages long. The December newsletter will start on page 99.

2009-03-03: There is an error in the March 2009 CPMS newsletter. On p22 there is an advertisement for the 47th Annual O.N.A. Convention in Kitchener, ON. The text at the bottom should indicate that "the CPMS is having a Casual Meeting at the ONA Convention on Saturday April 25 from 9am-11am in the Ontario Salon Room B." Incorrect information appeared in the printed newsletter and initial copies available online. We apologize for the error.

2008-06-12: "My CPMS" is launched. "My CPMS" is a members-only section of the website that contains archived newsletters and other members-only tools. Check it out!

2008-05-17: Since the March newsletter, we have set up online access to newsletters via this website. With that launch, we have added several old issues to the website from digital files that we had on-hand. Admittedly, our record-keeping wasn't too good, and we did not keep electronic copies of newsletters older than Dec 2004. Even then, a few issues in between were missing too. Today we have added the first newsletter that has been scanned from paper, along with a second edition that was digitally recreated. Your thoughts and feedback on this are welcomed!
