At the end of 2012, the Membership decided that continuing to maintain CATC/ACCT as a professional Association was impractical, in that we are a small volunteer organization, with limited resources and time to devote to the administrative duties necessary for survival and growth. Therefore, this pioneering body will disband and be replaced with a simpler Therapeutic Clown Network, so that we may continue the important job of networking and supporting each other in our professional practice across Canada, and with emerging international groups.
