In addition to my client work and other industry responsibilities, I also serve as the Secretary / Treasurer of the International Geosynthetics Society Foundation. The IGS Foundation was created in late 2019 and is a non-profit, charitable organization. The mission of the Foundation is to support and expand the activities and reach of the IGS, particularly in the areas of education and market growth. I will serve on the Board of Trustees of the Foundation until December, 2021, having been selected by the IGS Council.
The Foundation welcomes the participation and support of all, within, or outside the general geosynthetics industry. Geosynthetics make a strong contribution to a better planet and the Foundation is an important part of expanding that market and our industries’ sustainable message. A brief video with several of our Founding Donors, myself and the Board’s Chairman – Jacques Cote explains the Foundation and highlights our kickoff at GeoAmericas 2020. The video is linked here, and can also be found on the IGS Foundation website at http://www.TheIGSFoundation.com
