Summer breezes are still blowing across the United States, but now is the time to plan your winter getaway to Maui, Hawaii, for NASSCO’s 40th Annual Conference to be held Feb. 10-12, 2016.

While the destination may imply fun in the sun, the technical and educational information far outshines the recreational benefits NASSCO members who attend this important conference will receive.

In addition to networking with peers, joining an influential NASSCO committee and participating in NASSCO’S general meeting, one of the highlights of NASSCO’s Annual Conference is the highly acclaimed technical program. These one-day sessions offer a time for NASSCO members to come together to share new technologies and services to support NASSCO’s mission to set standards for the assessment and rehabilitation of underground infrastructure and to promote the continued acceptance and growth of trenchless technologies.

With NASSCO Annual Conference attendance and expectations growing every year, a formal Technical Program Committee was formed at the 2015 NASSCO Annual Conference in Savannah, Georgia. Members of this committee help evaluate topics to be presented and ensure the day remains an objective “no sales” event by providing education and information that is both timely and relevant to all involved in underground infrastructure. There will, however, be opportunities for members to share their products and services with small displays available outside the technical program rooms where attendees can network during breaks and lunch.

Calls for Papers were sent to all NASSCO members as well as each of NASSCO’s highly active committees this spring. Approximately 15 abstracts were received and will be considered for inclusion in the 2016 Technical Program.

In 2015, NASSCO’s Technical Program was structured as two separate tracks. The first covered Safety, Risk Assessment and Municipal Issues; the second covered Collection System Inspection, Maintenance and Rehabilitation. In 2016, the tracks will focus on Inspection, Laterals, Cleaning and Rehabilitation, and will include a Municipal Forum with participants who represent cities and utilities deeply involved in the use of trenchless technologies.

While the primary purpose of the Annual Conference is to educate and inform, members will also enjoy a special 40th Anniversary Celebration of NASSCO with a golf tournament, welcome reception and banquet.

The NASSCO Annual Conference will be held at the Sheraton Maui Resort and Spa. Attendance is open to all NASSCO members. Please visit to book your room and learn more, and remember to request your special NASSCO rate.
