In January 2018, Ahren Bichler from Trumer Schutzbauten Canada Ltd. took over as president of the Association of Geohazard Professionals. The association is a North American based geohazards industry lobby group with a focus on education, developing new standards and guidelines and the general progression of the industry. It consists of specialty contractors, engineering companies, academics, owners (e.g. railways, hydro/energy, highways, etc.) and manufacturers of geohazard mitigation products. Trumer is proud to support the association and help steer the future of the industry. If you would like to get involved, please visit www.geohazardassociation.org.
