Hale MEMBERSHIP ADMINISTRATOR Renee Corea December NASTT Chair's Message Volume 28 No. 6 December 2018 As 2018 comes to a close, so does my time as Chair of NASTT. These past two years have seen growth to both our Society and the trenchless technology industry. I'd like to thank you for allowing me to serve as your Chair and for all the support and dedication you have given. We are looking forward to another exciting No-Dig Show next March in Chicago. Preparations are well under way for our 2019 technical session schedule. We are offering three brand new forum topics in 2019 that you will want to check out. The topics include Direct Pipe, Advanced Pressure Pipeline Condition Assessment and Innovative Products. The exhibit hall is also not to be missed as we will have more exhibitors showcasing their industry innovations than we've ever hosted. NASTT's 2019 No-Dig Show is a must-attend event for the trenchless community. NASTT's educational and outreach initiatives would not be possible without our dedicated network of volunteer members. Our volunteers travel all over North American to bring you NASTT's Good Practices Courses and regional events. They volunteer their time to serve on NASTT's various committees, present the webinars in our complementary series and provide leadership to the Society. Thank you, volunteers! We hope to see you in Chicago for NASTT's 2019 No-Dig Show or at any of our upcoming training or networking events. Frank Firsching NASTT Chair YOU'RE AN IMPORTANT PART OF THE NASTT FAMILY!
