The one-day Technical Seminar will provide attendees with an advance working knowledge of the state-of-practice in the proper selection, design and construction of geosynthetic materials. The seminar will offer the latest information on emerging geosynthetic materials in the areas of reinforcement and stabilization (mine grids, geogrids and geotextiles), fabric structures, erosion control materials and geomembranes.

The Technical Seminar is appropriate for design engineers, recent survey academy graduates, retired engineers, project managers, government officials and private sector experts.

The instructors are drawn from GMA members and by members of the Industrial Fabrics Association International (IFAI) Fabric Structure division, including Fred Chuck of HUESKER, Doug Brown of Tensar, Jimmy Youngblood of GSE Environmental, Ted Anderson of HEYtex & BondCote, and Keith Harris of Hanes Geo Components. The seminar will be moderated by Thomas McClellan of SAME and Jonathan Curry of GMA.
