“These
two events provide a great networking and learning opportunity for industry
professionals,” comments 2012-2013 ISSA President Doug Ford. “From interactive
demonstrations to one-on-one discussions, those in attendance leave with a greater
understanding of pavement preservation and best practices along with
information about new technology, equipment and process developments that can
help them grow their business and maintain stakeholder or customer satisfaction.”

 

The Slurry
Systems Workshop, held from January 22-25 at the Texas Station Hotel in Las
Vegas, Nevada, is a three-day study course that challenges and informs
operators and managers on best practices for the slurry and micro surfacing,
chip sealing and crack treatment processes. In addition to direct discussions
with industry experts, classroom type instruction, “hands-on” operation and
live demonstrations, attendees will be able to view state-of-the-art slurry and
micro-surfacing, chip sealing and crack treatment equipment. A certificate of
achievement will be awarded to all participants at the completion of the
program, and Continuing Education Units (CEU’s) are available to qualified participants
through a partnership with the National Center for Pavement Preservation at
Michigan State University.
