ACPA Press Briefing Highlights Key Initiatives

ACPA’s annual press briefing at World of Concrete this year focused on key initiatives, including the industry promotion plan, ACPA’s ConcreteCOMPETES program, market growth, progress with PavementDesigner.org, and a new Interstate Highway investment plan (see related story, “Presentation Outlines a Viable Plan for Interstate Highway Investment.”)

Referring to the industry promotion plan, ACPA Chairman Jim Mack (CEMEX) thanked the PCA and the cement industry, and commented that, “ACPA and PCA have worked on a plan that will focus our promotional and technical support efforts where they will be most effective.  He emphasized ACPA is moving forward quickly and decively on the plan. 

“We need to execute our plans well … and quickly,” he said, adding, “the best plans in the world are only the best if they are executed properly.”  Mack said the industry promotion plan, along with  the ConcreteCOMPETES program initiated by 2018 Chairman Chuck Niederriter will be his key focus areas in 2019.  

ACPA President & CEO Jerry Voigt provided a positive outlook on concrete pavement square yards placed in 2018, as well as as projections for growth in 2019.  He also provided an update on PavementDesigner.org, noting that since its official rollout in January 2018, it has been used to create thousands of pavement thickness designs on every continent except one (noting with a smile that the ACPA had no documented uses in Antartica).  He also commented on the TRB report that provides a “blueprint” for Interstate highway investment also covered in this week’s ACPA TODAY.

The press conference was well-attended and included a robust Q&A period that ended right at the 1-hour time alloted by the World of Concrete show management.

ACPA Focuses on Outreach and Training at World of Concrete

ACPA’s annual participation in the World of Concrete earlier this month focused on education and outreach, with PavementDesigner.org taking center stage.  ACPA’s Jerry Voigt and Bill Davenport presented a market overview and also discussed other initiatives (including PavementDesigner.org) at a well-attended press conference. 

Voigt also presented an industry training course on “Constructing Smooth Concrete Pavements,” a three-hour course that extended well past its allotted time because of an extensive question & answer exchange.  Eric Ferrebee presented also presented an industry training course, “Using New Online Thickness Design Software,” which generated good discussions and questions.

The event also gave ACPA the staff to visit with hundreds of booth visitors and members.  Visitors were treated to a PavementDesigner.org phone “kickstand,” as well as a wide range of technical literature and other support materials.
