2019 Northern Midwest UG Meeting: A Recap

North Dakota One Call (NDOC) was pleased to attend the Northern Midwest Users’ Group Meeting (NMUG) in Bloomington, MN on January 24-25, 2019. One Call Concepts, Inc. (OCC) hosted the event, which was customized for three notification centers- NDOC, Gopher State One Call (GSOC), and Iowa One Call (IOC). The NMUG brings together notification center staff and facility operators from states with similar geographies, seasons, shared contractors, and initiatives and provides them with a forum to network with their peers, while learning about the OCC products and services available to them.

The meeting was held over two days at the Bloomington Sheraton Hotel before the upcoming busy digging season. The content of the scheduled presentations, combined with the insights shared during the open roundtable discussions, provided attendees a regional view of damage prevention strategies and suggested opportunities for new partnerships with other industry peers. Participants shared their successes, challenges, and new ideas about improving damage prevention.

Throughout the day and a half of the meeting, presenters led discussions on a variety of topics, including:

They did a fantastic job!

In a post-event survey, meeting attendees rated the venue, session content, and other factors. Overall, survey participants had positive feedback and noted that they would recommend attending this event to a colleague/co-worker. It’s easy to see that the Northern Midwest Users’ Group gives everyone who attends a forum to connect and collaborate on the mutual goal of damage prevention!
