The Future of CM

This issue marks the 70th edition of the online version of CM magazine. During that time, we've reviewed more than 400 materials and provided news and feature stories to you, our reader.

We are proud of what we have accomplished, but we face an uncertain future. CM generates limited revenue from readers who voluntarily submit a subscription fee, from advertisers who periodically support us, and from private donors. Unfortunately, this revenue cannot sustain the continued production of the magazine.

So it is that we appeal to you, our readership. Naturally, our preference is for donations (we can provide charitable tax receipts), but we would also like to hear your suggestions on how we might make the magazine attract a greater readership - thereby increasing our sponsorship possibilities. What's good about CM? What can we do better? What would you like to see in the magazine? What are your thoughts on revenue possibilities?

Any and all comments are welcome - just e-mail us at the address below.
