USSD President’s Letter
Our USSD national meetings are typically held only one or two months in advance of the ICOLD meeting. Therefore to encourage participation for 2010, I will need to start at our 2009 national meeting. The 2009 USSD national meeting will be in Nashville, Tennessee, next April 21 – 24.

USSD President’s Letter

Dear Dr. Pham Hong Giang,

Congratulations again for the selection of Viet Nam as the site of the 2010 ICOLD meeting. I would like to publicize and encourage participation from the United States Society on Dams at this historic ICOLD meeting. One of my objectives as president of USSD is to encourage more widespread participation in ICOLD activities. I also recognize the importance of this technical meeting in friendship between our citizens.

Our USSD national meetings are typically held only one or two months in advance of the ICOLD meeting. Therefore to encourage participation for 2010, I will need to start at our 2009 national meeting. The 2009 USSD national meeting will be in Nashville, Tennessee, next April 21 – 24.

Would it be possible for you to send us an electronic copy or CD of VNCOLD’s presentation that was given at the ICOLD meeting Sofia? I would very much like to show this at USSD’s general membership meeting or at the conference plenary session in Nashville. Also, members of VNCOLD have attended recent USSD national conferences in Portland (2008) and Philadelphia (2007). If you or other members of VNCOLD are planning to attend the 2009 USSD conference, I would like to offer you exhibit booth space, free of cost, for publicizing the 2010 conference and VNCOLD activities.    

 Thank you,

Kenneth A. Steele, P.E.
