The event welcomed geotechnical professionals from throughout the Carolinas who attended to hear from an enviable list of presenters address various technical topics important to the industry. Several academics, a USACE representative, and private sector professionals which included personnel from PDCA members Keller and Haley & Aldrich, were all on the speaker lineup. The program was made possible through generous support from numerous regional sponsors.

Following a full day of presentations on February 12th, the PDCA South Carolina Chapter hosted a networking reception for attendees, during which time, several students from engineering programs at regional universities displayed and discussed posters of case studies they completed.
