elcome to your fall edition of the CDA Bulletin.
I hope you've had a great summer with friends
and family, and that your work endeavors have
been successful. You should be receiving this issue shortly
before our annual conference, and I hope to see many of
you there.
Your CDA Conference 2017 committee is getting ready to
welcome us to beautiful Kelowna, B.C. for the conference.
The committee has assembled a full technical program,
with weekend workshops, technical presentations, and
at the end of the week, excellent tours of small and large
dams as well as tailings dams. We are fortunate to have
keynote speakers every morning to share with us fresh
ideas about water forecasting models, the economics of
water resources, and dam safety risk. We don't want to
distract you from the technical program, but hope you'll
find time for touring the wine country, and maybe even
squeezing in a hike, a walk along the lake, or a round of
golf. And we have a program each day for your companion.
Work at CDA tends to slow down over the summer, as
it's difficult to get committees together over the holiday
season. That tends to change as our conference approaches
and the various committees prepare for meetings and
workshops. We've earned a bit of a break over the summer,
as I believe the association has seen excellent progress
this year on a number of our strategic initiatives. As I've
reported to you previously, a number of regional events
and workshops have been held throughout the year. The
CDA guidance documents are getting increased exposure
throughout Canada, as well as around the world. We've
released new bulletins and have more in the works, and
have started translating some of our guidance documents
into Spanish and Portuguese for use by our international
members. I can also say that, in my day job, I have seen a

ienvenue à votre édition d'automne du Bulletin de
l'ACB. J'espère que vous avez passé un bon été avec
vos amis et votre famille. Je souhaite aussi que les
efforts investis dans votre travail aient porté fruit. Vous
devriez recevoir ce numéro peu de temps avant notre conférence annuelle où j'attends de vous voir en grand nombre.
Le comité de la Conférence ACB 2017 se prépare à nous
accueillir dans la belle ville de Kelowna, en ColombieBritannique. Le comité a monté un programme technique
complet avec des ateliers de fin de semaine, des présentations techniques et d'excellentes visites guidées à des
barrages, grands et petits, ainsi qu'à des barrages miniers.
Nous avons la chance d'avoir des conférenciers tous les
matins pour partager avec nous de nouvelles idées sur les
modèles de prévision des apports, la gestion des ressources
en eau et le risque lié à la sécurité des barrages. Nous ne
voulons pas vous distraire du programme technique, mais
j'espère que vous trouverez le temps de visiter cette région
viticole et, peut-être même, de faire une randonnée le long
du lac ou de vous adonner à une partie de golf. Et nous avons
aussi un programme quotidien pour votre compagnon ou
votre compagne.
Les travaux de l'ACB tendent à ralentir au cours de l'été,
car il devient alors difficile de réunir les comités pendant
les vacances. Cela tend à changer à mesure que notre conférence approche et que les différents comités se préparent
pour des réunions et des ateliers. Nous avons bien mérité
cette pause, car je crois que l'association a réalisé cette
année d'excellents progrès par rapport à plusieurs de nos
initiatives stratégiques. Comme je vous l'ai déjà signalé,
un certain nombre d'événements régionaux et d'ateliers
ont eu lieu tout au long de l'année. Les documents d'orientation de l'ACB reçoivent une exposition accrue dans tout
le Canada ainsi qu'à travers le monde entier. Nous avons
