Dear ACCES Community,

Along with the ACCES executive team, I would like to start out with welcoming you all to 2018. This year will bring one of the biggest Clinical Engineering Educational Seminars and Trade Expos held in Atlantic Canada for some time with CMBES and ACCES combining efforts in Charlottetown during the second week of May.

The committees behind the event are working hard and timelines are being met with the recent opening of the vendor’s registration site and the call for CMBES papers. Stay tuned for the delegate registration site launch, so that you can sign up for opportunities to network with your peers from across Canada, attend educational seminars from world-renowned speakers, visit with any of the 50 different vendors in the Exhibitor’s Hall, and enjoy the hospitality of the Island.

Each year, the executive team is constantly striving to better support our Mission statement and develop and promote opportunities for continuing education, personal growth, sharing of experiences, adoption of standards of practice, and certification. We are excited to support this statement by beginning 2018 with awarding our first ACCES bursary offering to a future technologist. Moving forward, we hope to develop new ideas to support our membership, and we encourage you to contact us at any time with ideas of your own. We want to build our society together!


Brett Fraser
