We really hope that this website will become a platform to get information on CMS-related issues and for the CMS community to share and exchange thoughts, ideas and concerns.
The idea is to constantly enrich and update the content by users themselves, so your help is really needed.
To take part in criticalamanagent.org's life, you need to create an account on the website (which just takes two minutes). From then onwards, you can add information about Upcoming Events, News Stories, Conferences, Teaching Resources, Books etc. - anything that is of interest to the CMS community.
