NOTICE OF CHANGES TO CLA'S PROFESSIONAL STRUCTURE

The CLA Divisions were dissolved by a vote of the CLA membership at the Association's AGM in May 2011. At that time, members adopted a revised Constitution and Bylaws which replaced the former structures of Divisions and Interest Groups with new units called Networks.

The webpages for the former Divisions of CACUL, CAPL, CASL, CASLIS and CLTA are available as archived sites; no new content will be added to those pages after 30 May 2011.

Please visit the Networks page for information on the new professional units.
