We've embarked on our sec- ond Strategic Plan and have exciting goals and objectives on the horizon. Training and education are part of our mission and our training and event calendar is filled with educational and networking oppor- tunities this fall and the rest of the year. Fall is the season when several of our Regional Chapters host their annual trenchless conferences. Take a look at the schedule here in this newsletter and check our website regularly as we are always adding events and training opportunities. Whether it is a regional conference, NASTT's Good Practices Courses, a networking event or a compli- mentary webinar, we're sure you'll find an opportunity to expand your trenchless toolbox through our offerings. NASTT's complementary trenchless webinar series continues this year with two webinars on the calendar. Join us on Oct. 24 for Introduction to Trenchless Rehabilitation and on Nov. 14 for Introduction to Trenchless New Installations. Both of these webinars are great for newcomers to the field as well as those that want to expand their under- standing of the suite of technologies that make up our industry. Visit for registration details and sign up for this free series. NASTT offers a variety of awards each year to honor and promote multiple aspects of the trenchless industry. NASTT's No-Dig Show exhibitors are encouraged to apply for the Abbott Award for Innovative Products & Services to be recognized for industry innovations. Do you know a young trenchless cham- pion?

Along with awards, we offer two scholarship programs, NASTT's No-Dig Show Municipal and Public Utility Scholarship Program and NASTT's Argent Memorial Scholarship Program.
