Geotechnical Group’s 45th Anniversary

The group is celebrating its 45th anniversary this year! Frank Pita, founder and the group’s first president, has joined the board once again, this time as Historian.  He has prepared a written summary of the group’s history with input from David Cotton, Mark Rohrbach, Stan Boyle, and Bo McFadden.  We greatly appreciate the efforts of Frank, David, Mark, Stan, and Bo and their continued dedication to the group.

We have posted the summary of the group’s history as a draft document on the website.  We invite you to review the draft and provide feedback.  The draft document will be posted for a 30-day comment period.  After comments are received, the summary will be finalized and made available online as a resource for members.
