(L-R) Bruce Langan, Brad Roberts
The PDCA 2023 Board of Directors has a new member; effective February 6, 2023, Bradford Roberts has filled the vacancy that was created when Bruce Langan stepped away, after serving in Association leadership for a term of two years. The Board met during the 2023 Annual Conference that took place in early February, among the business items on the agenda was the ratification of this change.
"As a geotechnical engineer serving the northeastern region of the U.S. for more than three decades, my firm has been active in PDCA for several years," said Roberts. "We have experienced unique, quality programming through conferences, technical seminars, and webinars in recent years. When I was presented the opportunity to serve on the leadership team at PDCA, I promptly accepted the challenge. Moving forward, I expect to play a role in shaping the industry and advancing the driven pile in the marketplace."

Said Bruce, of his longtime affiliation with PDCA, "It has been an honor to serve pile drivers as a member of the PDCA Board of Directors; I thank all the members who elected me to a term in leadership. Pile driving is a critical component of my career in deep foundations equipment sales and rental and I will continue to enthusiastically support PDCA and promote the driven pile."
Frank Peters, Executive Director of PDCA, extolled both gentlemen involved in the leadership change. "Look, all Board Members, standing committee members, and Chapter leadership teams are volunteers who have very important day jobs. PDCA is extraordinarily fortunate to have such quality individuals volunteering to contribute their time and expertise toward industry advancement. Bruce has been a pleasure to work with during his time on the Board and I humbly thank him for his efforts. Meantime, my sincerest appreciation to Brad for answering the call; he will bring a high level of professionalism and expertise to the PDCA leadership."
