What We Do
We hold an annual conference in the fall with keynote presentations, technical papers and workshops, with supplier exhibits. The annual conference is the focus for exchange of information and experience during the year, and provides superb opportunities for networking. Technical papers presented at past conferences are available for download by CDA Members. In addition to the annual conference, we hold regional workshops and events organized by local groups.
CDA Technical Committees and Working Groups produce publications including guidelines and technical bulletins on topics such as Dam Safety and Public Safety Around Dams. These publications are available for purchase through the website – CDA Members receive discounted pricing.
We produce a quarterly print magazine – the CDA Bulletin - with articles, technical information and developments of interest to CDA Members, as well as opportunities for advertising. The CDA Bulletin is mailed to all CDA Members. CDA Members are also able to download current and past issues of the Bulletin.
Our policy regarding the collection and use of your information
The CDA does not sell its membership or conference attendee lists. If you have received an offer to purchase a CDA membership list, it is a scam.
If you have granted us permission, we can use your personal information in order to send you newsletters and other electronic correspondence, with the intent of offering you the best service possible, and to inform you about opportunities and benefits of your CDA membership.
We will not, in any circumstances, share your personal information with other individuals or organizations without your permission, including public organizations, corporations or individuals, except when applicable by law. We do not sell, communicate or divulge your information to any mailing lists.
The only exception is if the law or a court order compels us to share your information.
All personal information you supply is protected according to the federal government’s Privacy Act. This means that you are entitled to know when the information is collected and to be informed of the purpose of such collection, but also to access said information.
