For Doug Jatcko, president of NPCA Producer Member company Front Range Precast, attending local and regional wastewater conferences is critical to meeting the needs of customers.
“We have to get in there close with end users – firefighters, well drillers and service personnel, health department septic practice regulators, designers, engineers and excavators – learning their problems and providing their solutions,” he said.
Being a regular attendee is paramount to success, as it allows Jatcko’s business to create connections and spread the message of the many advantages of precast concrete. Just like Jatcko, the NPCA professional staff is working for you to help accomplish these goals.
Claude Goguen, P.E., LEED AP, director of sustainability and technical education, exhibited and conducted two presentations at the Colorado Professionals in Onsite Wastewater Annual Education Conference, Jan. 18-19, in Denver, Colo. Goguen’s presentations covered septic tanks and grease interceptors and collectively drew about 100 attendees. NPCA attended the conference as part of the association’s On-site Wastewater Optional Ballot initiative.
More than 150 engineers, installers, maintenance providers, manufacturers and regulators attended the conference. In addition to Front Range Precast Concrete, NPCA Producer Member Valley Precast presented and exhibited at the event.
