The South Dakota Chapter and the South Dakota Ready Mixed Concrete Association presented the annual concrete conference this week. More than 200 professionals attended the event, which focused on tech transfer, industry updates and award presentations. 

Jerry Voigt provided an update on ACPA programs and iniatiatives.  

Thanks to some quick thinking, Tyler Ley, Oklahoma State University, was able to present via web conference after the flu prevented him from flying to attend the conference.  

Eric Ferrebee and John Adam (CP Tech Center) stepped up to fill out the agenda with a team presentation, with John presenting on Performance Engineered Mixtures and Eric presenting on concrete pavement joint design, sealing and layout. Eric also presented on resilient concrete pavements.

The program also included presentations by the South Dakota DOT, Boral Construction Materials Servic*, Cemstone, GCP Applied Technologies*, NRMCA and PCA.
