22 Individuals Honoured as CDA Life Members


The Canadian Dam Association has created a new category to honour distinguished members and long-time supporters who have reached the end of their career.

Life Membership may be granted to CDA members whose lifetime of dedication and achievement has contributed significantly to the dam industry in Canada.  Although they may be no longer actively working in the field, CDA hopes that Life Members continue to be an active part of the dam community and maintain their involvement with the association.
