The 2019 Slurry Systems Workshop, January 18-21, 2019, had a record-breaking 480 registered attendees. Held annually in Las Vegas, Nevada, more than 290 ISSA Members, 110 government agency representatives and educational attendees, and 78 non-members all came together for three full days of spring training. Attendees came from eight countries (Canada, China, Columbia, Dominican Republic, France, New Zealand, Spain and the United States) and from 40 states.

 

Attendees gather as ISSA President Rex Eberly welcomed them to the 2019 Slurry Systems Workshop. 

Under the leadership of Program Chair Chuck Ingram, Slurry Pavers, Inc., and Co-Chair Stephanie Stewart, Nouryon, the 2019 Slurry Systems Workshop brought both presentations and hands-on learning for all attendees. Presentations included proper site selection, overview of pavement preservation treatments, safety excellence, update from the Federal Highway Administration, MnRoad/NCAT phase 1 findings, real life effects of pavement preservation, and an Iowa DOT study on pavement preservation research. Attendees also experienced a live demonstration showcasing pavement preservation treatments. 

  The live demonstration brought attendees up close as pavement preservation treatments were applied.
 

During the Workshop, attendees could attend up to two different breakout sessions which included Micro Surfacing & Slurry Seal, Chip Seal & Fog Seal, Crack Seals, Technical, Inspection, and What’s New With ISSA. Attendees also had the option to attend sessions that included slurry and micro calibration and record keeping, distributor and chip spreader operation, and calibration, slurry and micro materials and mix design, and lastly, mix tables where attendees rotated to visit 5 different stations. At the conclusion on the Workshop, ISSA offered two knowledge-based exams to gauge what attendees learned while at the Workshop. The National Center for Pavement Preservation again offered the AASHTO-TSP2 test following the Workshop this year.
