In 2016 NASSCO will celebrate its 40th year of setting standards for the assessment and rehabilitation of underground infrastructure. As we look forward, we also look back to those who have made significant contributions and impacted the continued acceptance and growth of trenchless technologies. This month we have the honor of highlighting Bill Shook, president and founder of APM PERMAFORM, and his contributions to our industry.

Bill served on the NASSCO Board for many years, including serving as NASSCO’s President in 2006. In 2011 Bill was awarded the NASSCO Select Society of Sanitary Sewer Sleuths Award which is a high honor as each member is chosen by peers in the industry. We are grateful for Bill’s generous past and ongoing contributions to help NASSCO set standards for the assessment and rehabilitation of underground infrastructure and to ensure the continued acceptance and growth of trenchless technologies.
