QNJAC Geotechnical Meeting - The Future of Our Profession
13 September 2023,
We are delighted to announce that in collaboration with the Extractive Industry Geology Conferences that the QNJAC Geotechnical Subcommittee we will be holding an evening workshop titled, The Future of Our Profession for geologists and geotechnical specialists working within the extractive industry.
The evening workshop will take place the evening prior to the one-day Extractive Industry Geology conference. This event is free to attend and open to all. The Future of Our Profession Workshop has been organised to debate three pressing hot topics that are currently impacting our profession:
1. Do we need to design excavation and tips to Eurocode and if so, how?
2. Do we need a professional register for Geologists/Geotechnical Specialists?
3. 25 years following the Quarry Regulations, what geotechnical matters should the QNJAC Geotechnical Subcommittee focus on?
This is your opportunity to engage with and help shape the future of our profession. This part of the conference is free to attend and has been kindly sponsored by GEARS and GWP.
Rob Palmer (Chairman) – Tarmac
