Try calling Sandy Pringle and see if he could give a talk on pressure grouting CMU and concrete walls. He may be able to convince a grout supplier to also come. Immediately after the next seismic event we all become interested in repairing building but why not learn how its done before. I am sure Sandy can tell us about a few nightmares. 2. It would be nice to have another talk about CMU and Concrete thin wall design. Perhaps you could the Masonry Institute and Precast Concrete Institute to provide a speaker. 3. How about the do's and don't of installing Hilti and Red Head concrete anchors. They could also talk about the latest epoxy installed bolts. 4. Try contacting a tilt-up building contractor and get the phone number of a tilt-up panel wall lifting contractor. We all could learn from them about the hardware they use, safety factors on the hardware and areas where we cause them problems due to access, etc. 5. I am not sure if the general membership would be interested in precast concrete utility vault companies do for the utility companies but I could probably get someone to do a show and tell. If you get out of Southern California you find that a lot more civil structure are precast concrete. I prefer weekdays at Costa Mesa. Luminares in L.A. is too far to travel from south Orange County. You did not seem to be getting any nibbles on your post so I thought I could give a few ideas. Hope it helps. Jim Dane, P.E.
