President’s Message / Message du président
It was great to meet with old friends and make some new ones at the recent CRPA conference in Quebec City. The 2018 local organizing committee, co-chaired by Stéphane Jean-Francois and Manon Rouleau, put on a great conference!
It is said that Portage and Main in Winnipeg is Canada’s windiest intersection, but I think I found a few intersections around Château Frontenac that are a close second.
The field trip to Laval University to look at equipment for managing and mitigating radiological emergencies was very interesting and a nice break from lectures all day long.
Kudos to Gary Wilson and Sandu Sonoc, who helped the registration subcommittee out when we needed some assistance on exam day.
Sue Singer continues to make the rest of us look good.
Most of the country seems to have gone from winter to summer, skipping spring. Be assured that, while members of the board of directors and our many committee volunteers are looking forward to fun in the sun, the affairs of the association are still on our minds (and maybe in our hearts)—whether we are at work or at play.
In closing, I would like to congratulate our 2018 award recipients and our 11 new CRPA(R)s.
