The following are handouts created from our 2016 speaker presentations. (Not all speakers provided us with files to create handouts.)

30th Annual GSDI Spring Septic System Conference & Expo
As was the case last year, Associated Grocers  is hosting its two-day event during our conference dates. That means that we will be competing for event parking in the garage attached to the Radisson. This is especially true for those who arrive late (or after 8:00 a.m)  The link below provides information about other nearby city-owned/public parking options. Click on the larger "P" symbols for the address, rates and hours of a given city garage.  The green lines shown on streets indicates the availability of two-hour, on-street parking which may not be suitable for our attendees.  The purple lines indicate areas where ten-hour, on-street parking is available. As a reminder, GSDI is no longer paying for attendee parking.
