“As a longtime supporter of CGA and its mission of shared responsibility in damage prevention, Shell Pipeline Company LP is pleased to sponsor the 2021 CGA Conference & Expo. The conference offers access to CGA committee meetings, access to educational sessions, and networking opportunities across the damage prevention community.”
“One Call Centers play a central role in the damage prevention process in the way we work with other stakeholder groups to reduce damages in our states. Dig Safely New York, Inc., has endorsed the 2021 CGA Conference & Expo and is encouraging our staff and board members to attend, because this is the event where their peers will be participating in conversations about the future of damage prevention, taking advantage of educational and training opportunities, and discussing how other One Call Centers are working to reduce damages in states across the country.”
“When ELM Companies is considering whether to sponsor and exhibit at a conference, the decision comes down to one critical factor: Will we reach the decision makers? For the 2021 CGA Conference & Expo, we believe that will be true more than ever before. CGA’s connection to 1,700 members year-round, combined with its reputation as the preeminent source for damage prevention Best Practices and education, will make the Renaissance Orlando at SeaWorld the place to be the first week of March 2021.”
"CGA is the go-to organization for excavators to collaborate with our fellow partners in damage prevention to address the real-world problems and obstacles surrounding damage prevention protocols. Without CGA’s leadership, excavating would be less safe than it is today. From CGA’s new initiatives focused on taking damage prevention to the next level and to engaging roundtables that include the excavator perspective and input, we are looking forward to rolling up our sleeves in Orlando and digging into the future of damage prevention alongside CGA’s committed members."
"CGA is built to serve all 16 damage prevention stakeholder groups, which makes it the ideal organizer for the 2021 CGA Conference & Expo -- an event all stakeholders will want to attend. CGA’s 20-year track record in bringing stakeholders together to address and solve our shared damage prevention challenges is sure to make the 2021 CGA Conference & Expo a forum where attendees can expect to leave more educated and connected to their peers than when they arrived. Verizon fully endorses the 2021 CGA Conference & Expo as the place for continuing damage prevention education."
“CGA has been the leading trade association in the damage prevention industry for nearly 20 years, and the agenda for its 2021 Conference & Expo will take CGA’s mission to even greater heights. Ushering in a new era of damage prevention requires bringing all the industry players together for focused problem solving and a renewed commitment to our collective goals. The new format promises to build on the momentum of the last two decades, but also truly spark new energy and concrete action plans for the next evolution of the industry.”
