PCA/ACPA Paving Webinar Set for Friday

PCA announced yesterday the web link for the PCA/ACPA concrete pavement webinar, which is held monthly. The next webinar is scheduled for this Friday at 11 a.m. (Eastern) / 10 a.m. (Central).

GoToMeeting does not require registration. Please refer to the “Join GoToMeeting” button in this email to join the webinar on Friday morning. The hour-long webinar will include a presentation on portland-limestone cement (PLC), a blended cement with a higher limestone content than portland cement. Presented by Jamie Farny, PCA’s Director of Building Marketing, he will provide an overview of PLCs, which are resulting in more environmentally friendly construction.

The second presentation will be by Charles Stuart, Executive Director of the Southwest Concrete Pavement Association. He will discuss successes in outreach and training in California, which is part of our ACPA/PCA Promotion Plan. Through program initiatives led by Charles and SCPA, we have seen increased concrete pavement usage.

No advance registration is required to participate in the webinar. To join, click here to log-in just ahead of the start time.

ACPA Presents Promotion Plan Update

ACPA presented an update on its comprehensive promotion plan to PCA Paving Committee last week.

The presentation by Jerry Voigt and Scott Mueller included a series of wins from ACPA Promotion Plan states, as well as programming that benefited other ACPA members. The 20 minute presentation was very well received and generated positive discussion with cement company partners.

ACPA continues to work a blend of policy initiatives (notably long-term concrete pavement improvements) with project initiatives (short and mid-range concrete pavement improvements) to help better position concrete pavements in the marketplace.

Two recent successes for ACPA included the revision of the soil stabilization specification for the Indiana DOT, as well as the success of our webinar program (in partnership with the CP Tech Center).

You Still Have Time to Register for the Next ACPA-PCA Webinar

There’s still time to register for the next PCA-ACPA paving webinar, which is scheduled for this Friday (August 14) at Noon (Central)/ 1 p.m. (Eastern)

The program will include, “Lifecycle Cost Analysis/Asset Management with the Arkansas DOT,” which explores how keeping pace with the pulse of the DOT is leading to new opportunities. The topic will be presented by Alan Meadors, Oklahoma/Arkansas Chapter.

The webinar also will include, “Using Cement Slurry Directly from a Ready Mix Truck.” The presentation, by Scott Hall, of Sagamore Ready Mix, will describe a dust-free process for recycling failed asphalt pavement into a new stronger cement treated base. Click here to register for the August 14th webinar.

Here’s a preview of other topics in the upcoming webinar series:

  • September 11—The webinar series continues with “Resiliency and Resilient Pavement Perspectives,” which explains how programs are meeting the demands in the southeastern and mid-Atlantic regions of the US. Participants will hear how the pavement industry (via ACPA) is approaching this opportunity. Presenters include: Amy Wedel (Florida Chapter), Ray Seipp (Mid-Atlantic Chapter), and Jim Mack (CEMEX and past-Chairman of ACPA).
  • October 9—This webinar will cover, “Defining and Updating Specifications with the DOT.” The program will explore the working relationship with Caltrans and the formula for success. It’s part specifications, part relationships, and part tenacity. The topic will be presented by Charles Stuart, Southwest Concrete Pavement Association.

Additional topics and webinars are being added to the schedule and will be announced soon.

PCA Postpones Promoters’ Forum

PCA has announced a decision to postpone the 2020 Promoters’ Forum, originally scheduled for next month.

Citing ongoing complications due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the decision was made to defer the event until 2021. Details will be announced after new dates have been set, PCA says.

The Promoters’ Forum is designed to provide anyone involved in local cement and concrete promotion a unique networking experience. The forum allows concrete industry promoters to share ideas and hear about the latest promotion techniques; support available from national associations; industry best practices; and other resources.
