The Dangerous Goods Advisory Council (DGAC) is celebrating three decades of service to the hazardous materials industry this year.
Beginning April 14 and lasting for 30 weeks the DGAC Web site at dgac.org will feature 30 accomplishments from the council's long history. The feature will be open to the public and will include testimony from past chairmen, DGAC staff, and former and present government officials.
The apex of this year's celebration will take place at the 30th Annual Conference and Hazardous Materials Transportation Exposition November 5-7 in Savannah GA. The conference will feature special speakers, presentations, and a DGAC Wall of History commemorating the work done by DGAC members and staff over the past three decades.
Founded in 1973 and incorporated in 1978, DGAC's mission is to promote the safe transportation of hazardous materials/dangerous goods globally by providing education, assistance, and information to the private and public sectors through its unique status with regulatory bodies and the diversity and technical strengths of its membership.
