CSDA Names New Executive Director

The Concrete Sawing and Drilling Association (CSDA) announced today the appointment of Erin O’Brien as its Executive Director, following the retirement of Pat O’Brien, who served as Executive Director since 1992. 

“Erin has been intimately involved with the operations of CSDA for the past 10 years, so the opportunity to have her become the new Executive Director of the association creates a transition that will be as seamless as can be imagined, according to Matthew Finnigan, CSDA President. “This new chapter creates the opportunity for innovation as well as the growth of programs for our members and the industry as we enter a new decade.”

Concrete Industry Messaging Workshop

A meeting in Washington, D.C., on Tuesday focused on concrete industry messaging. One of the goals of the continued collaboration workshops is to identify a top-line message surrounding the climate impact of cement and concrete that all concrete markets can use. 

Ultimately, the cement and concrete industry is aiming to take ownership of the narrative about concrete as a sustainability solution, given that concrete is truly a low-impact material that is critical to meeting societal goals. 

The meeting included participants from PCA, NRMCA, MIT, the RMC Research Foundation, Tilt-up Concrete Association, California/Nevada Cement Association, ACPA, among others.
