Joint Use (Sep 12-15)

New technology, new regulations and an aging infrastructure continue to change the landscape of joint use. Facing new challenges and responsibilities, it becomes increasingly important for key stakeholders to foster open dialogue and collaborate to adapt to the changing environment, solve shared problems, focus on safety goals, and ensure the equitably of poles and other utility assets. This annual forum features a unique mix of presentations, dynamic power table topics, vendor displays, and networking opportunities to exchange information and best practices.
