qiang-zhangIt has been over six months since I became the President of CSBE/SCGAB. The goal I set out for my presidency was to come up with specific measures for revitalizing the Society. In my previous message, I reported the establishment and objectives of three subcommittees to address the issues of attracting young (student) members to the Society; enhancing the technical value of the Society; and enhancing communications. At its last meeting, the Council decided to establish a fourth subcommittee to address the financial challenges the Society is facing.

Treasurer (interim) report - Winter 2013

The society continues to run its yearly operating budget at a deficit. The deficit this year is forecast to be $36,000 on an operating budget of $102,000. This includes an extraordinary item of $20,000 for a membership retention study. The previous year’s deficit was $20,000 and the 2013 budget deficit is forecast to be $23,000. With banked cash reserves expected to be $114,000 at the end of this year it is time to consider ideas such as increased membership dues and AGM registration fees as well as tighten control on expenses. Not only is it prudent to ensure that we have at least one year operating expenses in reserve, at this cash burn rate we could only continue deficits of this size for 4 more years before ceasing to be a viable organization.

There are two areas council is looking at, cost cutting and increased revenues. Council has appointed a subcommittee to investigate this (John Morgan, Ron MacDonald, and Qiang Zhang) to determine where savings can be made in the immediate and long term. Revenues can also be increased and this too is being examined. Annual dues and AGM registration fees were examined closely by council at the last meeting to see what should be done to help stem the fiscal loss.

1) The CSBE portion of your annual Membership dues as outlined below: currently produce revenue of $20,000. Following the motion at the 2012 AGM to increase fees by 50%, council will, at its next meeting, consider a motion to raise annual dues by 50% as outlined in the adjacent table, for the 2014 fiscal year taking membership fee revenue to near $28,000. Note that the fees will remain unchanged for the current 2013 fiscal year as ASABE has already sent out the fee notices. This $8000 will pare the deficit down to $15,000, so additional work is required and soon. Student fees and grad student fees will remain unchanged so long as they are paid by CSBE and the CSBE Foundation. (ASABE finds themselves in a similar state and will also be increasing their fees (from a full member baseline of $130) resulting in a combined 2014 membership fee that will be bigger than your current expenditure.)

2) AGM revenues are the Society's other main source of income, and Council is investigating increased registration fees, videotaping of sessions for sale and other methods to address the deficit issue. Based on increased dues the CSBE AGM profit will need to be close to a forecast $15,000 each year - This will be difficult in years where there is a joint ASABE AGM event.

The combined effect of these measures will bring the CSBE-SCGAB into a closer to sustainable financial position for 2014 by arresting the cash burn rate from past years. Cash flow Trend with both increased dues and increased revenue from AGM.

News from the VP Technical - Winter 2013

The Society’s bylaws charge the Vice-President Technical with several tasks, the foremost of which is to work with the Technical Committee and Local Arrangements Committee to develop the technical program for the annual conference. In recent years, very satisfactory technical programs were generated with great enthusiasm by the people who served in this office prior to me and on the local arrangements committees of the annual conferences. This happy result belies an awkward circumstance: there has been no standing Technical Committee of the CSBE-SCGAB for many years!

This circumstance leads to the title of this report: I am calling on you to volunteer your expertise and a small amount of your time to serve on the Technical Committee. With a full Technical Committee, the commitment is not an onerous one. The committee as currently described in the Society’s bylaws has its own executive of four officers: Chair, Past-Chair, Vice-Chair, and Secretary. It also includes eight additional members with expertise conforming to the technical areas of the Society Journal: biological systems, information systems, food and bioprocess systems, machinery systems, waste management systems, building systems, soil and water systems, and renewable energy. Fully a dozen people, therefore, as well as the VP Technical, would share in the development of the technic al program of a conference. Please contact me directly (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) to indicate your willingness to serve on the Technical Committee.

As well as working with the Technical Committee, the VP Technical reports the names of student award winners to the Awards Committee Chair. If you hold an academic position, therefore, familiarize yourself with the awards that the 

Society and the CSBE-SCGAB Foundation make available to undergraduate and graduate students. Please contact me or Ali Madani, the Society Secretary, to ensure that your students win the recognition that they deserve and they are able to take advantage of this monetary support.

Finally, I look forward to seeing you in Saskatoon this summer at the annual conference and general meeting, from July 7th to 10th. We already have over one hundred submissions to the technical program, and there is still time remaining to submit your abstract before the extended deadline. Come and enjoy the fellowship of your colleagues and the chance to renew and extend your professional network. As well as having a great time, you’re also sure to learn something new!

Nexterra Systems Corp., the University of British Columbia and GE celebrated the successful completion of an energy-from-renewable-waste combined heat and power (CHP) system located at UBC's Vancouver campus in September. The Bioenergy Research & Demonstration Facility is the first demonstration of its kind in the world of a community-scale heat and power system fuelled by biomass.

The system, fueled by biomass, creates synthesis (syn) gas that is then burned, in raw form, to produce steam or it is conditioned to create ultra clean syn gas that is injected into an internal combustion engine used to generate electricity. The system provides heat and power to The University of British Columbia’s Vancouver campus. It facilitates research to develop feedstock (fuel) and process innovations, set new global standards for performance and emissions and lowers the campus’s greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs) and fossil fuel consumption.

UBC’s Bioenergy Research and Demonstration Facility (BRDF) will generate enough clean electricity to power 1,500 homes and will supply up to 12 percent of UBC’s heat requirements. It will reduce UBC’s natural gas consumption by 12 per cent and campus greenhouse gas emissions by 9 per cent (5,000 tonnes), the equivalent of taking 1,000 cars off the road.

Congratulation to Vijaya Raghavan

At the 130th Anniversary of the Society held in Ottawa during Nov. 16-18, 2012 ASABE/ CSBE Fellow Vijaya Raghavan was inducted as Fellow of Royal Society of Canada (RSC).

Raghavan

Professor Raghavan of Department of Bioresource Engineering of McGill University studies and develops pre- and post-production technologies and processes for growing and handling crops and horticultural produce. His work on soil management, controlled environment storage, drying, and thermal processing have led to the development of technologies and techniques that are being applied in developmental work in India and potentially in Africa to address issues of food security and safety, and poverty.

The Fellowship of the RSC was awarded on the basis of this body of work which is still on-going, and also on his current research on dimensional analysis of microbial fuel cells for the purpose of scale-up, controlled use of physical stresses on produce to induce increased production and content of bioactive components with health beneficial properties, microwave-assisted pyrolysis of different lignocellulosic materials for the production of high quality biochar, development of a method for microwave pasteurization of in-shell eggs, and the mathematical modeling and use of a double-pipe helical heat exchanger system. Dr Raghavan has also recently started work on the electrohydrodynamic drying and processing of produce.
