As involved as we are in the deep foundations industry (and just returning from the DFI annual conference), it seemed appropriate to take time to highlight several upcoming events in the industry. All of these are great opportunities to get PDH credits, do some networking, and build relationships in the deep foundations industry. Most are cooperative efforts of one or more of the G-I, DFI, PDCA, and ADSC. All of them have a line-up of great speakers that are leaders in the industry.
