The 68th annual conference was held in Charlottetown PEI. The conference was a successful exchange of technical information, which also showcased a student poster session and discussions on workplace diversity.
The conference was held over 4 days, Nov 19-22 and attended by 230 delegates. In addition to the technical exchange, delegates were treated to a wonderful eastern experience and enjoyed much nicer weather than had befallen us the previous year.
The conference started off with the Course on ‘Master Curves: For Dummies” presented by Alan Carter. Over 80 delegates registered for the course. The course treated attendees to a complicated topic presented in a clear and concise manner and with a little humour from Professor Carter.
A huge thank you to Alan for preparing and presenting the course. Not to mention the flight from France to Montreal to Toronto to Charlottetown that got him there in time to present.
The course was recorded and will be available to course attendees in the coming weeks.
Following the course, the opening CUPGA workshop had the Regional Director panel discussing sustainability across the country and this was followed by a regional perspective on sustainability with a panel of Atlantic contractors and owners. The finale for the workshop continued the ask the expert theme from last year with Gerry Huber providing insight to RAP binder contribution.
