2007 Message from the President of CAS
Prof Tara Dasgupta - What a fantastic feeling to be able to set up our own website?
CAS had been trying to achieve this for the past ten years in Trinidad but due to various technical difficulties the executives of CAS were unable to launch it. Now (July 2007) we have finally been able to find a suitable domain https://www.caswi.org and in Jamaica, http://www.caswi.org.jm and set up these websites.
Through our website we should now be able to communicate with our members and Fellows in other islands in the region; scientific information can be transmitted, we can create awareness of the Academy in the public and private sector and most importantly announcements of all events related to CAS can be easily made.
We have concurrently launched our own open access on-line ejournal http://www.caswi.org.jm/ejournal.
I am asking all our members to actively use these electronic facilities to voice their opinions on scientific matters and to communicate their research findings.
CAS is moving fast in achieving its goal, so make sure you move along with it.
If you are not a member, become a member immediately. If you are a member or a Fellow keep your subscription up to date.
Finally, I would like to thank Professor Robert Lancashire, Secretary of CAS for making our dream a reality. I would also like to thank the technical staff of MITS for extending their help to Prof. Lancashire on various technical matters and to Google for the site and access to the many Google Apps.
Professor Tara Dasgupta
President, CAS, 2007
