Continuity gives us roots; change gives us branches, letting us stretch and grow and reach new heights
~Pauline R. Kezer
The CIM Magazine editorial team recently stepped back and took a few days to re-examine the magazine. We wanted to ask ourselves whether we were doing
things well or “because, well, we have always done them that way.” The result will be a refreshed look for the publication with our coming February issue.
The CIM editorial team will also be undergoing some changes in 2012. Both the print and web teams will be growing as we put down new roots and extend new
branches. At the same time, one of our section editors, Andrea Nichiporuk, will be going on maternity leave for the next 12 months. Andrea, we hope that
you enjoy your time off with your family.
As well, our managing editor, Joan Tomiuk, will be retiring this winter after working in the CIM editorial department for the past 14 years. Joan’s
professionalism, sharp editing skills, eagle eye for detail and comprehensive knowledge of CIM will be greatly missed. Nevertheless, the legacy of her
character and quality work will be the roots that ground us as we continue to grow and evolve. I would like to thank Joan for all that she has taught me,
and for her generosity of time and spirit. Thanks for staying the course and maintaining your sense of humour, often into the wee hours of the morning,
when we had to meet crazy press deadlines or find creative ways to ensure magazines reached obscure destinations. On behalf of the entire CIM organization,
I want to thank you and wish you a joy-filled and meaningful retirement.
