NASSCO’s Technical Advisory Council and various technical NASSCO committees have worked hard to bring in-person trenchless technology education opportunities to regional locations across the country. 

The NASSCO Beantown Exchange was held Sept. 20, 2023, just outside of Boston at the Scottish Rite Masonic Museum and Library in Lexington, Massachusetts. Next up is the NASSCO Motor City Exchange Nov. 2 at Lovett Hall in the Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation in Dearborn, Michigan (a suburb of Detroit). NASSCO is returning to Lovett Hall for the third year. Two more Exchange events will be held in cities to be announced soon.

The events earn attendees 7 PDH or 0.7 CEU credits, and there is no fee for employees of municipalities and public agencies to attend this full day of learning:
