I recently returned to Queensland, Australia from the 2019 CGA 811 Excavation Safety Conference & Expo held in Florida. I have been fortunate to attend the past five conferences. This year, I attended multiple locator-specific sessions and, for me, it added to the appeal of the event. As the President of Nulca Australia, I appreciate the efforts to educate the industry.
At the Conference in 2016, I conceived the idea to hold a Nulca Damage Prevention Conference for locating contractors on the Gold Coast in Australia in 2017. We attracted more than 125 attendees, which we felt was a good result for an inaugural event. The event was run in conjunction with Great Southern Press and Australian Society of Trenchless Technology (ASTT). The three-day Conference included two highly-attended networking events and was a huge success.
Nulca will again partner with Great Southern Press and ASTT in Melbourne, September 10-13, 2019. Our goal is to focus on education for locators and contractors with the valued support of Dial Before You Dig. I warmly welcome and invite all international visitors who may be considering a visit “down under” this year.
