The UBC Pile Drivers and Divers has been a Labor Organization member of PDCA for the last several years; representatives of the organization regularly participate in the PDCA Annual Conference, its standing committees, and PDCA Chapter events. PDCA values all association members and embraces opportunities to grow various partnerships with the companies and organizations it represents.
As a North American labor organization that works closely with many PDCA member companies, the UBC Piledrivers and Divers also offers its members essential, unique, and often cutting- edge preparation and training for performing driven pile work on jobsites. An important part of the training program it administers is its UBC Millwright Piledriver Leadership Conference. For its 2023 event at the international headquarters in Las Vegas, Nevada, it hosted PDCA Executive Director Frank Peters as one of the speakers to address the large assembly of approximately 750 pile drivers. Mr. Peters took the stage on Wednesday afternoon (January 25, 2023) and detailed the PDCA story, its industry mission, international reach, professional development and training programs, market reach through industry leading publications, and critical function in advocating the driven pile method in deep foundation construction.
PDCA thanks the UBC Pile Drivers and Divers for including Executive Director Peters on the agenda for the annual event. For additional event coverage, visit the UBC Pile Drivers and Divers social media.
