NDA hosts 40th annual convention

Updated Jan 30, 2013

The National Demolition Association will host its 40th Anniversary Convention at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront in California, March 23-26.

Attendance is open to professionals in demolition contracting, general contracting, civil engineering, recycling, scrap, salvage and other industries. The convention will include educational programs, entertainment and networking opportunities for both NDA members and other attendees.

The convention will feature a multimedia presentation, “Christchurch: The Disaster and its Cleanup,” given by three demolition contractors who have worked on cleanup efforts after the earthquake that struck Christchurch, New Zealand in 2011. The presentation will focus on providing government disaster response agencies, seismic experts and the general public with information about how California can respond to disasters, using responses to the New Zealand earthquake as examples.

Mike Abrashoff, a former United States Navy Commander, will keynote the convention and present this year’s Environmental Excellence Awards

Other scheduled events for the convention include educational sessions on civil and criminal liability and OSHA; maximizing scrap vendor profits; PCBs in caulk; and the City of San Diego’s construction and demolition debris ordinance.

Registration for exhibitors and attendees is open. For more information, visit demolitionassociation.com or call 800-541-2412.
