The International Foundation Congress and Equipment Expo is underway in Orlando, FL. This is one of the biggest geo-conferences out there and is sponsored by ADSC, The Geo-Institute and PDCA with the cooperation of 15 other national and international organizations including AEG, ARMA, DFI, the FHWA and others. Perhaps GeoPrac will be able to report from the next IFCEE, but for now we welcome anyone who would like to submit photos, commentary or other info from the conference.

A document entitled “Engineering and Geology Practice Guidelines” has been prepared by the JTFAP or Joint Task Force on Areas of Practice. The JFTAP was comprised of representatives from The American Institute of Professional Geologists (AIPG), the Association of Environmental and Engineering Geologists (AEG) and the Geo-Institute (G-I) of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE). A draft of the document was published in February of 2009 and members of AEG have already been providing comments to their board through the Section Chairs for possible revisions to the document or for opinions on whether or not AEG should adopt it. A recent email to AEG Members from the President of AEG, Mark Molinari, indicates that the G-I has released the document to their membership for review and comments. Read on for more info.
