This is our first magazine since the AGS Annual Conference in September and I am pleased to report that it was a fantastic day, very well received and attended. We had a great turn-out at the National Motorcycle Museum in Birmingham so a big thank you is owed to all those involved, in particular the many fantastic sponsors and speakers. Everyone I spoke to was very appreciative of being able to meet with their industry colleagues in a face-to-face setting after all this time, as was I.  It was good to see so many of you there and I look forward to reviewing the invaluable feedback from delegates so that we can continue to improve our conference experience for Members.

We are continuing our popular series of on-line seminars too and I welcome you to join the next remote event on Sample Disturbance in November. You can read more about past and forth-coming events in this magazine. This month’s issue also features the brand-new guidance produced by the Business Practice Working Group, making sense of Training Paths followed by Ground Practitioners. Another BPWG member and one of our Early Career practitioners is Sarah Hey and we learn of her role as Project Manager with Hydrock.

In our articles this month, we highlight the issues associated with ground infiltration testing and construction, and advise on accommodating climate change in land contamination risk management.

Read on for the latest news and for updates on new publications and services available to Members, many for free!

I hope to see you soon.

Sally Hudson
