Billed as the "largest virtual gathering dedicated to the cast-in-place concrete foundations industry," the Concrete Foundations Convention 2020 will include education, networking, exhibits, awards and more from July 29-31.
About 25 educational sessions are scheduled led by industry experts and covering issues from cracking and fiber reinforcement to job costing and managing a concrete business during COVID-19. There will be roundtable discussion groups, live demos, coffee conversations, as well. Registration cost is $95 for members and $95 per day for nonmembers.
"A nonmember company can register people for $95 per person per day with an incredible line-up of topics and speakers offering the entire range of departments and employee types in these firms," says Jim R. Baty, CFA's executive director.
To participate, attendees need to download and install the conference software on a desktop or laptop equipped with headphones/ear buds and a mic.
