National Precast Concrete Association professional staff members attend many conferences and trade shows throughout the year to speak with the professionals that have an impact on the precast concrete industry. Recently, Claude Goguen, P.E., LEED AP, director of sustainability and technical education, and Mitch Rector, technical services engineer, traveled to Grand Rapids, Mich., for the National Environmental Health Association’s Annual Educational Conference to speak with its members about solutions the precast concrete industry provides to their industry.
NEHA represents more than 5,000 members involved in environmental health protection and management including employees of state and county health departments throughout North America. These professionals are the decisions makers when it comes to decentralized on-site wastewater treatment, a prime market for NPCA members.
The two exhibited at the show and Goguen also presented two sessions, one on septic tank inspection and another on grease interceptor design. Between the two courses, NPCA educated 70 attendees and interacted with many more at the booth. Opportunities like this are one of the many ways the NPCA professional staff expands the association’s outreach to the individuals that matter most to NPCA members.
