Ramsey visit to USA/Australia.

In March, I made a visit to the USA for client visits and to attend two events – the Mirafi University event by TenCate and the Charleston SC geosynthetics conference. The Mirafi event was very interesting and helped to validate all of the transportation lobbying that I have done. The highlight of the Charleston events were a lecture on “Ethics in Geosynthetics” sponsored by the IGS North America chapter and a GMA lecture illustrating the progress of GMA since it’s inception. The Australia trip started with a series of Workshops in Melbourne and Brisbane on geomembrane barriers. The event was sponsored by the Austrialasian IGS chapter (webpage here: https://www.acigs.org/) and detailed the current state of practice and issues relating to use of geomembranes in an extremely difficult environment(s). The workshops were completed successfully, but unfortunately, the covid-19 crisis required an early departure from Australia. However, I will remain engaged with the Australian geosynthetics market – I suppose we will all be video conferencing for a while.
