CAM Bulletin Number 1 - Jan. 1996


Welcome to the first issue of the Bulletin of the Commonwealth Association of Museums (CAM). It builds on the former CAM Newsletter. CAM meeting in Botswana in 1995 was keen to provide increased networking among members. The CAM Bulletin will be a forum for exchange of ideas and information and discussion on critical issues promoting post colonial museology. All members are invited to make contributions within the scope of the forum.

This issue includes the speeches of key sponsors at the Commonwealth meeting in Botswana. The proceedings of the Botswana meeting are being finalised by our energetic Secretary General. Those of you with outstanding contributions must send them to Lois by the end of June.

The Association cannot overestimate the invaluable contribution made by Professor Keith Thomson of Palmerston North, New Zealand in editing and compiling the newsletter from 1987 to 1995. Keith is a longtime member of CAM and its Executive Council and it was his vision and his diligence which was responsible for the existence of the newsletter. Thank you Keith.

Dr. Amareswar Galla
