elcome to your summer edition of the CDA
Bulletin. Spring and fall are usually the two
busy periods at the association, and this year
follows the pattern!
Following the successful re-introduction of regional
workshops last spring, I can report that we expanded the
number and type of regional events this year.
In April, I was honoured to attend the two-day collaborative workshop between Alberta Environment and Parks
and CDA. It was an excellent event hosted by Javid Iqbal
and the Dam Safety Team at AEP, and they deserve many
accolades for their hard work. The theme of the event was
Risk-Informed Decision Making. The first day included several excellent guest speakers; and the second day was composed of two concurrent workshops attended by 150 people:
both were sold out!
Other regional events were held in Vancouver (organized
by Cori Creba and Jenna Simzer of the Young Professionals
Committee), and an almost-full day of technical presentations in Regina (organized by Saskatchewan director
Doug Kilgour and Jody Scammell).
CDA travelled to Peru in May to offer the Dam Safety
Reviews for Mining Dams workshop. This is a good example
of our international business initiative, but also of how our
Canadian guidance is well recognized around the world. If
your company is interested in having the DSR or any CDA
workshop offered within your company, please contact
the CDA office.
The CDA Board had our spring board meeting in Gatineau
at the beginning of April, and had a productive 1.5 days of
meetings. Some of the notable business included:
* Alberta selected as the favoured location for the CDA
2019 conference. It will likely be an abbreviated program given that CDA is also hosting ICOLD in Ottawa
that year.
* Two significant changes were made regarding our guidance documents:

ienvenue à votre édition estivale du bulletin de
l'ACB. Le printemps et l'automne sont généralement
les deux périodes occupées à l'association et cette
année ne fait pas exception!
À la suite de la réintroduction réussie des ateliers régionaux,
au printemps dernier, je peux signaler que nous avons accru
le nombre et le type d'événements régionaux cette année.
En avril, j'ai eu l'honneur d'assister à l'atelier d'Alberta
Environment and Parks et de l'ACB. C'était un excellent
événement organisé par Javid Iqbal et l'équipe de sécurité
des barrages à l'AEP, qui méritent des félicitations pour leur
travail acharné. Le thème était la Prise de décision fondée sur
le risque. Le premier jour comprenait plusieurs excellents
conférenciers et la deuxième journée était composée de deux
ateliers simultanés auxquels ont assisté 150 personnes : les
deux ont fait salle comble!
D'autres événements ont eu lieu à Vancouver (organisé
par Cori Creba et Jenna Simzer du Comité des jeunes professionnels) et une journée de présentations techniques
a été tenue à Regina (organisée par le représentant de la
Saskatchewan Doug Kilgour et Jody Scammell).
L'ACB a voyagé au Pérou en mai pour offrir l'atelier sur
les études d'évaluation de la sécurité des digues à stériles.
C'est un bon exemple de nos initiatives internationales
et de reconnaissance mondiale des normes canadiennes.
Si votre entreprise est intéressée à tenir un atelier sur les
études d'évaluation de la sécurité des barrages ou tout autre
sujet contactez le bureau de l'ACB.
Le conseil d'administration de l'ACB s'est réuni à Gatineau
au début d'avril. Des rencontres productives y ont été tenues
pendant une journée et demie. Parmi les faits saillants :
* L'Alberta a été choisie comme lieu du congrès 2019 de
l'ACB. Il s'agira probablement d'un programme abrégé
étant donné que l'ACB accueille également la CIGB à
Ottawa cette année-là.
* Deux changements importants ont été apportés à nos
documents :
