The Inland Branch has a jam-packed programme for 2013, focusing on innovative events to reach new audiences and potential CSSA members, while creating even more networking opportunities for existing members.
On 14th March a CPD-accredited seminar is scheduled for Bloemfontein in an attempt to extend the CSSA footprint beyond the traditional branches. This seminar titled Concrete in Action will comprise presentations on concrete materials and standards, an industry perspective on concrete cracking and the proportioning and handling of concrete as applied in floor construction.
The QTM planned for May will focus on the research into concrete conducted by post-graduate students as we believe that interacting with students is an investment in the professional workforce of the future. A meeting such as this gives industry an opportunity to evaluate the research being done at tertiary level, often made possible by sponsorships from Industry, while also giving students the occasion to interact with potential employers.
During June a Fulton’s Awards evening will be held in Gauteng. It has been recognized that not all interested parties can attend the prestigious gala event in the Drakensberg. In line with the other branches, the Inland Branch will host its own satellite event on Thursday 13th June.
Please keep an eye on this website for more detail on all our events.
Keep it concrete!
