You need to open your calendar and block off Nov. 4–5, 2021, to join us in Nashville, Tenn., for the return to an in-person geosynthetics conference, GeoNashville. The conference features plenary presentations from the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, as they look at the future of geosynthetics in their arenas. Also joining us will be Jie Han, Ph.D., the 2021 Dr. Robert M. Koerner Awardee to present his Koerner lecture during our lunch plenary session. Unique to this conference will be presentations, exhibits and receptions in the same venue, allowing closer interaction between attendees. Additionally, we have provided a forum (Innovative Technologies) for several of our exhibiting companies to promote their products and concepts.

GMA Washington, D.C., fall Lobby Day
Washington, D.C., reopens this summer (we hope). The next D.C. Lobby Day is scheduled for Oct. 19–20 when we plan to return to Capitol Hill for conversations to promote the expanded use of geosynthetics in infrastructure reconstruction. If you have attended Lobby Day before, you have firsthand knowledge of how much the awareness and understanding of geosynthetics has grown in the halls of Congress over the past decade. If you’ve never attended our Lobby Day, make plans to be there and see for yourself how the congressional offices function and what it takes to influence legislative language. Register to attend at www.GMAnow.com in our Events section.
