In January and February of 2019 Boyd attended three industry events in the United States. The winter meeting of ASTM D-35 was held in Houston. The annual AMI conference on Polyethylene Films was held at the Marriott Fort Lauderdale, FL Hotel and convention center and the IFAI/GMA sponsored Geosynthetics 2019 event was held in Houston at the Marriott Marquis convention center. All three events were well attended and presented advances and market information on geomembrane and polyethylene materials and usage. In Houston Boyd appeared in a panel discussion on geocomposite testing frequency, attended multiple IGS and GMA breakout meetings and Chaired a session on environmental geotechnics. In addition, I was able to reconnect with several longstanding colleagues, pictured here.
