Past President Report 2009-2010

Annual General Meetings

I participated to the 2009 annual general meeting (AGM) of the CSBE/SCGAB in Prince Edward Island and this year AGM will be held during the 17th World Congress conference of the International Commission of Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering (CIGR) in Québec City from June 13th to 17th. The CSBE/SCGAB will be officially hosting this CIGR World conference.

Council and Other Subcommittee Meetings

The 2009-2010 Council had its first face-to-face meeting in Prince Edward Island last July and another one is planned for the Québec site prior to this year conference.

Six teleconference meetings of the council were held between October 19th, 2009 and May 10th, 2010. I attended all these meetings as Past President.

The subcommittee formed to address the replacement of the society secretary met three times via teleconference between January and March 2010.

I collaborated with the Awards committee to review all the 2010 Awards applications.

Items of Interest for the Year 2009-2010

As a member of the organizing committee for the CIGR World Congress, I took part of the numerous meetings and discussions we had about that conference and collaborated with the other members of the committee to the various tasks involved in planning such an event. As co-chair of the scientific committee, I also reviewed some abstracts submitted for the conference.

On January 21st, I made a presentation to agricultural engineering students at Laval University about the society and the benefits of being member.
