ACPA chapters had the opportunity to discuss the features and benefits of concrete pavements with county officials this week during the National Association of County Engineers’ Annual Meeting/Management and Technical Conference. 

Held in Wichita, KS, the annual event is a prime opportunity to meet with county officials responsible for infrastructure policy administration, funding and construction.  Discussion topics included concrete overlays and PavementDesigner.com, the cement and concrete industries concrete pavement thickness design platform.

Todd LaTorella and Ken Liescheidt of the Missouri-Kansas Chapter and Alan Meadors Oklahoma/Arkansas Chapter represent ACPA for the two days of the exhibitor program, one of the highlights of the annual meeting and conference. 

ACPA and Partners to Meet with County Officials

ACPA, NRMCA, and PCA, along with the Ohio Concrete Pavement Association and Ohio Concrete Association will once exhibit at the annual National Association of County Engineers (NACE) Annual Meeting/Management & Technical Conference.    

The event is scheduled for April 9 through 13 in Cincinnati, with the exhibit open on Sunday and Monday, April 9 and 10. The associations will also present a 20-minute showcase on concrete products and technologies, as well as design assistance.

As reported earlier this month, ACPA, NRMCA, and PCA collaborated once again to present a strong showing at the recent National Association of County Engineers Exposition and Conference, held earlier this week in Daytona Beach, Fla. (The event this year was held jointly with the Florida Chapter of the American Public Works Association.)

The event drew approximately 650 participants, with about half representing APWA, according to PCA’s Wayne Adaska.   

Using booth graphics, presentation materials, and collateral developed around the theme, “Competition Paves,” the associations exhibited as the Alliance for Pavement Competition during the exposition portion of the event on Monday and Tuesday.   The Competition Paves messaging, as well as a booth graphic that showed competition within many states attracted attention and sparked discussions as well.

Competition Paves” is an education and outreach program organized by the Alliance for Pavement Competition.  The program is aimed at demonstrating the enhanced cost-savings and improved value to agencies/owners, taxpayers, and the traveling public.    Representatives from the respective national associations, as well as state and regional promoters, will be on hand to meet with county engineers and other public officials who typically attend the event.
