Just in time, the September/October issue of GBA NewsLog provides more solid information and some opinion, too. Access it by clicking the link above. Here’s a summary of the news:

  • Six months in the active life of GBA: GBA President Dave Schoenwolf tells us what’s been happening. A lot, actually!
  • When From the Bench starts on page one, it’s because of a significant ruling. Sometimes it’s good. Sometimes it’s not. This is one of the latter.
  • GBA’s charter membership in the Institute for Sustainable Infrastructure gives you an opportunity to get in on their sustainable infrastructure ground floor.
  • How do you plan for the future when you don’t know what it’s going to be? That may not be as difficult as you think, says the Business Practices Committee.
  • Too big to fall? A new website makes it simple for you to tell your community about the bridges folks may not want to drive over too much…or too slowly.
  • EPA releases Stormwater and Wastewater Planning Approach Framework. Get a copy from GBA.
  • A new website for buying and selling used drilling equipment.
  • Terra does it yet again: Another great quarter; another new record.

  • GBA welcomes two new members of staff: Tamara Kukla and Barb Nappy.
  • A Social Forum for Everyone in ASFE (now GBA) – ASFE Squared – lets folks know how easy it is to access GBA publications and other materials. Easy is good!
