PelicanCorp to Appear at Common Ground Alliance Conference

Impact of Changing Technology on One Call Systems Explored at 2021 CGA Conference & Expo

Irvine, California – October 7, 2021 PelicanCorp, the global leader in the damage prevention industry, is set to appear at the 2021 Common Ground Alliance (CGA) Conference and Expo in Orlando, Florida, October 12-15. This CGA event, the largest in North America, is where top professionals in the damage prevention industry gather for meaningful cross-industry, multi-stakeholder collaboration that results in actionable solutions.

Duane Rodgers, CEO PelicanCorp, will be participating in both a panel and a session at this year’s CGA Conference. Rodgers will take the stage on Thursday, October 14, at 9:45 am, for the panel discussion, Leveraging Data for Success. Organizations who perform locates are awash in data. This data can be used to improve damage prevention programs. This discussion will include common industry challenges such as using historical data to predict staffing and budgeting, late tickets, load-leveling, and more. A key goal of the panel? Learning to think about the data that’s already on your one call tickets in a new way.

“PelicanCorp is committed to preventing damage to underground infrastructure, optimizing workflows, and safety,” said Duane Rodgers, CEO, PelicanCorp. “I’m excited to exchange the latest news, developments, and technology changes on the horizon for our industry in a face-to-face setting. The CGA Conference and Expo is the premier venue to meet with damage prevention industry professionals.”

Duane Rodgers will be presenting an educational session later the same day at 3:30 pm: Big Changes Below the Horizon – The Impact of Changing Technology on One Call Systems. In this session, Rodgers will delve into the evolving future of One Call Systems, the latest technological advances, and developments around the globe. The session's focus will be on preparedness: how to approach recent innovations while implementing best practices for your organization.

“We believe in the importance of collaboration within the underground asset damage prevention industry," said Denny Michael, Chief Marketing Officers, PelicanCorp. "Meeting with industry professionals and sharing our latest technologies and experiences from around the world at the CGA Conference and Expo is a once-a-year opportunity not to be missed.”
