RehabZone A Home Run For UCT Attendees

April 2013, Vol. 68 No. 4

“During the tour, all of my specific inquiries were answered on a detailed level,” Powell said. “Pictures taken at the stand will be implemented in some of our training courses here at Tracto-Technik. All in all I found the RehabZone very informative and useful.”

The annual RehabZone is sponsored by NASSCO in cooperation with the American Society of Civil Engineers’ Trenchless Installation of Pipelines and Pipeline Infrastructure Systems technical committee, the Water Environment Federation’s Collection System Committee and Underground Construction magazine. It is funded by sponsoring organizations and participating
companies.

Magill, president of Avanti International, has been an active member of the RehabZone Committee and served on the marketing subcommittee for the 2012 event before becoming chairperson for 2013. He will repeat as chairperson for the 2014 event as will Vice Chairperson Guy Leslie, RapidView.

“We are very pleased with RehabZone 2013,” concluded Magill, “and we’re aiming higher for next year. In our post-show meetings, we have some ideas that may take 11 months to pull off, but the conviction is there. Neighboring colleges will have opportunities to schedule educational tours and the Skills Challenge will grow.

“Sponsorships were up over last year, and we hope will be up again for 2014. Each year, volunteers take on more and more responsibility and the event would not be possible without the work of many dedicated people.”

NASSCO Executive Director Ted DeBoda observes that the organizations involved in planning and implementing the RehabZone generally compete with each other on the outside in the marketplace, but work together in a unique spirit of cooperation to achieve NASSCO’s common goal: assuring the continued acceptance and growth of trenchless technologies.
