  • You agree that we may verify your membership status with the Worker Safety Insurance Board or its equivalent, insurance companies, or regulatory bodies, including those years when your membership is inactive.  CAMA will confirm the inactive membership to WSIB, insurance companies, or regulatory bodies when your membership lapses when contacted by these agencies

  • Continuing education hours provided by CAMA will not accumulate if not used in specific years.  You are entitled to a maximum of eight continuing education hours per calendar year from CAMA.  Members need to pay the continuing education fees to sign up for the continuing education event at least thirty days before the start of the event.  When attended in full, the continuing education fees will be refunded.
