Annual Report from Past President Shiv Prasher

The Joint ASABE and CSBE/SCGAB Annual Conference in Montreal in 2014 is on-track. The dates for the Joint Conference, however, have not been finalized yet. We are going to meet with Mark Zielke of ASABE in Montreal in June 2012. Historically, the Conference is held in July or August.

There is a link on the CSBE/SCGAB homepage to the conference site for the 3rd Climate Change Technology Conference (CCTC 2013). The theme of this conference is “Engineering for Global Sustainability”. The conference is a Canadian and international forum for the exchange of ideas for dealing with climate change. It is also an opportunity to keep abreast of emerging techniques and technologies for the mitigation of and adaptation to the impacts of climate change. The Engineering Institute of Canada (EIC) and ten of its member societies, including the CSBE/SCGAB, are organizing CCTC 2013, which will be held on the campus of Concordia University in Montreal on May 27-29, 2013. (http://www.cctc2013.ca). Grant Clark is representing CSBE in the planning process for the conference.

The 2013 CSBE Meeting will be held in Saskatoon. However, the date of the meeting is yet to be determined.

I will be taking a closer look at the Society by-laws and may have specific recommendations to make at the Annual General Meeting.

I want to thank all CSBE members for their confidence in my abilities and their unwavering support over the last two years. I will continue to do my best for the good of our Society.
