On behalf of your PCI Executive Committee, I’d like to invite you, and encourage you to attend the 2018 PCI Convention & National Bridge Conference. This year’s convention will be held February 20-24, 2018, in Denver, Colo. where PCI will be partnering with The Precast Show for the third consecutive year! We’re happy to say that this collaboration has been very successful from the start and continues to build. The larger tradeshow was an immediate draw but what we experienced last year was a big uptick in crossover participation of training offered by PCI and NPCA. In particular, there is now more opportunity for plant operations training than PCI members are accustomed to seeing.
PCI educational sessions are always an attractive feature of the convention and offer multiple tracks, depending on your area of interest. Whether you are looking for education in your current role, fulfilling continuing education requirements, or simply have an interest in other areas of the industry, there is likely a program for you. As with last year, there will once again be an opportunity to purchase a Full Conference registration giving you access to complimentary or discounted Precast Show education courses.
This year’s convention is in Denver, Colo. Denver is clearly a beautiful part of the country with sightseeing, outdoor activities, and a vibrant metropolitan area. In addition to the amenities Denver naturally affords, I would encourage you to participate in the Annual Industry Extravaganza and Networking Event, “Precast Postgame Experience at Mile High Stadium,” on Saturday night. Last year’s joint PCI/NPCA event at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame was a tremendous success and this year’s event will be as well.
This is an exciting time for PCI as we look to enhance the value PCI brings to our membership and work together to grow the industry. Once again, I would encourage you to attend the 2018 PCI Convention and National Bridge Conference and see first-hand the positive things going on in our industry. I look forward to seeing all of you in Denver!
Dan Juntunen, Chairman.
