Registration is now open for our next conference! (April 9th through April 11th).

We invite you to join us, and take advantage of learning from the experiences of the leaders in our field. This is our fifth conference, and we are more excited than ever to have such a prestigious set of speakers. All of our presenters are speaking on their lessons learned in geotechnical engineering. While you will receive 11 Professional Development Hours (PDH's), the real value comes from implementing their insights into your practice.
