NASSCO Report – NASSCO Exchange Events are Back
NASSCO Exchange events are one-day educational sessions that feature many of the industry resources developed by NASSCO’s dynamic technical committees.
NASSCO committee members work diligently throughout the year to achieve NASSCO’s mission to set standards for the assessment, maintenance and rehabilitation of underground infrastructure and to assure the continued acceptance and growth of trenchless technologies. They do this by building awareness of aging underground infrastructure through education, technical resources and advocacy.
