CALJ Executive Director Update

As many of you know, after 8 years of dedicated service to the Canadian Association of Learned Journals and our members, Ken Clavette, Executive Director, made the decision to retire as of November 19, 2021. Ken has been instrumental in maintaining CALJ operations in working directly with members to welcome new and returning members, maintaining membership accounts, and collecting member feedback. Ken has provided corporate continuity throughout the terms of 4 presidents and supported CALJ through continuous change.
