ACPA Announces Newest Local Promotion Affiliate

ACPA announces the affiliation of the Southwest Concrete Pavement Association (SWCPA), which expands the association’s network to 21 regional and local paving associations. The affiliation is part of the ACPA’s national marketing and local promotion plan and represents a significant step in supporting “boots on the ground” promotion activities.

“We’re very pleased to welcome the Southwest Concrete Pavement Association as an ACPA-affiliated local paving promotion association,” says Jerry Voigt, ACPA President & CEO. “We look forward to supporting with and working closely with SWCPA as it provides support to members and agencies/owners in California and Nevada.

Supported by the multifaceted capabilities and a range of technical, advocacy and promotional resources from ACPA National, the SWCPA and other affiliated chapters and state paving associations provide direct support to agencies/owners and other customers in states/provinces and regions throughout the United States and Canada.

The Southwest Concrete Pavement Association was founded in 1990 and provides technology transfer, technical service, advocacy and promotion of concrete pavements. The SWCPA supports its members with concrete pavement promotion, specification development, government affairs, and pavement research. The SWCPA is also committed to improving the quality of concrete pavements through workshops, seminars, technical support, and other educational opportunities.
