The new building code incorporates some significant changes from the 2009 International Building Code (2010 California Building Code). At our June Regional Meetings, David Baska, of Terracon Consultants, will discuss the seismic provisions of the new code with a geotechnical engineer's perspective and share his experience with implementing the provisions into practice.
There will be two dinner meetings, Santa Ana on June 10 (Click here for event info) and Sacramento on June 11 (Click here for event info ). Our website contains the registration documents and the ability to prepay online. We also have a special student rate. If you reserve a spot, you may also pay at the door the night of the event.
Registration deadline is June 4.
Annual Conference-May 2014
Waves of Opportunity... Oceans of Success!
Our annual conference in Newport Beach is just around the corner and CalGeo staff is busy making last minute plans and preparations! We have a record number of attendees this year and look forward to an informative and fun conference.
CalGeo is also sponsoring the attendance of 19 students from the (5) student chapters we support in the state, another record number. Your generous donations to our Student Outreach fund during our membership drive and to our silent auction fundraiser at our conference helps us to support the students in this way. To donate an item, gift certificate, basket, etc. to our silent auction being held on May 3, contact Marsha Myers at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We'll be tweeting throughout the conference. Join the news and fun by following the tweets.
Our sponsors are a huge part of our success. We'd like to thank our conference sponsors for their support and generosity.
