Attendees of the first annual LICA Nebraska Construction Expo & Field Day register and pick up their badges.
The first annual Nebraska Construction Expo & Field Day held on July 31 was a great success for the Nebraska LICA chapter. This event was open to the public and nearly 400 attendees were welcomed to the 40 acre site by volunteers and 28 sponsors that displayed literature, machinery, and other equipment related to land construction activities.
The attendees included area contractors, NRCS, local chapter members as well as the LICA National President Bob Clark, Vice President Steve Anderson, and CEO Jerry Biuso Sr.
More than 40 pieces of large machinery were on display at the site including tiling machines, dozers, backhoes, motorgraders, excavators, mini-excavators, skid loaders, a side dump trailer and more. Several of these machines were equipped with GPS technology and constructed multiple terrace systems. Other activities at the site included tree removal and miscellaneous testing and demonstration of machinery and GPS equipment.
As a result of this expo, six new contractor members and 10 new associate members have joined the Nebraska LICA Chapter.
