Damage Prevention Meetings 

Each spring, Minnesota holds damage prevention meetings by and for the excavation community all around the state. These meetings are focused on safe digging and best practices education. As you may remember, last year’s meetings were held virtually.

We are happy to announce that in 2022 we are returning to in-person damage prevention meetings held in locations throughout the state of Minnesota. We look forward to meeting with you again in person! Registration is now open—see the instructions below to sign up.

How to register:

  1. Visit the MNCGA website events calendar to find a meeting location and date that works for you. Make sure to check both the March and April 2022 calendars.
