We’re starting the INRoadCon20 educational events the morning of your first full day to give you the lay of the land, check off some typical touristy check boxes and help you identify more spots you’d like to visit during your stay.

Coffee and pastry will be available in the Main Lobby beginning at 8:00 a.m. Buses depart at 9:00 a.m. While the buses will do a lot of the heavy lifting, make sure you wear comfy shoes for some walking.

We’ll meet up for a meal in the Salon Campeche inside the historic El Convento Hotel (built in 1646), sponsored by Brandeis Machinery & Supply Company and then bus it back to the resort for an afternoon of rest and relaxation OR more exploration on your own.

Buses depart La plaza Colón for La Concha Resort at 1:30 p.m. Please let staff know if you are not planning to ride the bus back to the hotel.

Hurricane Maria devastated Puerto Rico in 2017, and as with many natural disasters, contractors led the recovery effort. Coming fast on the heels of continued earthquake activity on the island, Monday’s panel discussion will share technical insights that Hoosier road builders can learn from – what worked well, situations to avoid and ongoing efforts.

ON THE PANEL

Anthony Huey of Reputation Management Associates will moderate expert discussion with:

  • Benjamin Colucci Rios, Ph.D., M.C.E., B.C.E., Professor at University of Puerto Rico-Mayaguez and Director of Puerto Rico Local Technical Assistance Program.

  • Tommy Blair, Vice President of Risk Management – EEO Officer, HIS Management Corp., Indianapolis is a certified in the following areas: Safety Manager, QA/QC for contractors from Army. Corps of Engineers, large scale emergency responder, HAZWOPER trainer, incident commander, 40 Hour HAZWOPER site worker, 24-Hour HAZWOPER emergency response, 30-hour OSHA, confined space entry/rescue and adult first aid and CPR.

Panelists will share in a conversation that seeks to answer the big question: What’s the most important lesson we can learn from Hurricane Maria and the recent earthquakes to best prepare for and respond to natural disasters in Indiana?

Finally, Huey will help you refine a disaster preparedness plan to keep your workplace safe during emergency situations.

Approved for 3.5 professional development hours for engineers.

You can learn if they are interested in you simply by noticing their pupils.

Reiman has provided expert body language analysis and knowledge of communication in print, radio and various TV media such as Fox News Channel, The Today Show, Good Morning America, Access Hollywood, EXTRA and Fast Money.

Event Details

With Hurricane Maria and recent earthquake recovery efforts ongoing, now’s your chance to give something back to your INRoadCon20 host location. Thank you to Irving Materials, Inc. for spearheading and sponsoring the 2020 Service Project!

WHAT

We are heading out to a camp that is a staging area for other volunteers helping with hurricane and earthquake recovery efforts. We’ll have the chance to increase the volunteer impact by creating a safe space for other volunteers to help out in Puerto Rico (as we saw on Monday, the island has a lot of recovery ahead). The camp itself (along with much of the rain forest) hasn’t completely recovered from Hurricane Maria.

Our Caring Crew will be painting, cleaning up, assembling bunk beds and more. Please let convention staff know if you have welding/plumbing skills, too!

WHEN

You can grab some coffee and a light breakfast in the lobby at 7:30 a.m. Buses will depart from La Concha at 8:00 a.m. and should have us back to the resort by 1:00 p.m.

WEAR

Don’t forget to wear your Welcome Gift T-shirt to identify yourself as a member of our Caring Crew! Please wear longer pants and closed-toe shoes if you have them. The camp will provide all of the necessary personal protective equipment.

FINAL NOTE

We will be documenting the project with photos and video to tell the story of how our industry cares about building communities near and far. If you would like to use those photos in your own company’s workforce development efforts, make sure you wear a company hat, too!
