On Thursday, March 28th 2019, part of the local Geosynthetics community was gathered for the relaunch the Chilean Chapter of the IGS.
The event counted with the presence of more than 55 attendees, was held at the dependencies of the Chilean Construction Chamber (CChC) and organized through the Executive Secretary of the Chapter (CDT – Corporación de Desarrollo Técnologico), an Non-profit entity that depends on the CCHC.
Between the main announcements we found the call for the elections for the 2019-2023 period to be held in July 2019.
The Chapter is also organizing the 1st Chilean Congress of Geosynthetics for the month of October 2019.
Within the framework of the Ambassadors program and Educating the Educators, the Chapter will apply for 2020 funds. During August we will receive the visit of Nathalie Touze to present the “Giroud Lecture”.
Between the activities scheduled for the year, the Chapter will host at least one 2 hour technical lecture and one 4 hour seminar per month.
