The Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute of Illinois & Wisconsin will host “Technology Tuesdays” lunchtime seminars on the first or second Tuesday of each month in 2012. Each program will be taught by an expert in that area of the precast concrete field.

The programs mostly will take place in downtown Chicago or Milwaukee, and occasionally in the Chicago suburbs. Attendees will earn 1.5 or 2.0 Professional Development Hours (PDH) or 7.5 HSW-Learning Units (LU). A certificate will be provided at the conclusion of each seminar.
