Improving State Damage Prevention (811) Laws

Friday, November 3

Preliminary Agenda

On Friday, November 3, 2017, NUCA will host a meeting/workshop to discuss and improve state damage prevention (811) laws.  The meeting will be held at the Doubletree by Hilton Hotel  following our annual Safety Directors Forum November 1-2.  We will begin promptly at 8:00 am and finish by 2:00 pm. There is no registration fee for this meeting, and a complimentary continental breakfast and lunch will be served.

During the first part of the workshop, we will determine where and what the problems are at the state level. Attendee participation is paramount and we will quickly list and consolidate the issues. We will also solicit input in advance of the meeting.

During the second part of the workshop, a panel of presenters will discuss the best state laws and provisions. Attendee input is also welcome and expected.

During the third and final segment of the day, we’ll circle back and develop action plans to improve state laws.

The workshop will be moderated by George Kennedy, with the help of Jim Stepahin.
