Save the Dates for ACPA Airport Workshop

ACPA encourages members, Chapters/States, and others to save the date for the annual ACPA Airport Workshop.  The three-day training and tech transfer event will be held August 28 through 30 at the Marriott Mission Valley in San Diego.   

This popular workshop has had record attendance the past three years, so please block the dates on your calendars if you are involved in designing, constructing, or rehabbing concrete pavements for commercial and military airports.   Discussions of the FAA’s P501 and UFGS 32 13 11 are popular topics for the workshop.

Look for updates by “blast” emails and in ACPA TODAY as agenda details and presenters are confirmed.

ACPA Takes a Stand

Where can you find written statements on timely issues?   The Association’s “Perspectives” documents provide both an overview and position statements on timely policy and technical topics. 

First developed in 2010, most of the position statements have not changed, except for minor updates to keep pace with evolving issues.  There are currently about a dozen policies and positions covered in the documents. 

One of the most used is ACPA’s position on highway authorization, but all the current position documents are commonly used to frame policy and technical issues at both the national and local level.   Click here to see the current list of ACPA “Perspectives.”
