Moments from the past:
CAGD history page created on website with photos as early as 1972

CAGD’s past president Dr. Bill Langstaff has made considerable effort compiling the history of the CAGD. “How
can you get there unless you know where you came from…. Thus the history,” said Dr. Langstaff. We derive
inspiration from the past to lead us in the future. We recently added a concise CAGD history page to our
website with photos as early as 1972 to show our rich history of quality CE, fellowship, and camaraderie. Here
