What members are saying about DFI
“The benefit of DFI is the networking, meeting with others in the industry and learning things that you can apply to your own projects — innovations that you can bring to your clients that can save them money and time. Everyone likes to be innovative, to look ahead and propose a solution that can help, be good for the environment, or save time or cost.”Maysill Pascal, P.E., Business Development Manager
“Belonging to DFI and joining a DFI Technical Committee puts you at the forefront of what’s coming next, the issues in the industry. You get to see it first and maybe be one of the people who guides the direction that we are going in for a particular method or technique.”Vaughn J. Godet, P.E., Regional Manager
