Ray Seipp, Executive Director of the Mid-Atlantic Chapter, ACPA is retiring after almost four years of distinguished service.

“During his tenure, Ray led the chapter in advocating strategically for concrete pavements in Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, and West Virginia,” said Jerry Voigt, ACPA President & CEO. “For those who worked with Ray over his distinguished career in the cement and concrete industry, he approached problems with a positive attitude and good cheer. We will miss Ray, but we knew all along that his tenure would be for a shorter period, as this is what he indicated to us upon his acceptance of the position.” Ray will phase down his involvement over the coming weeks and will be transitioned to full retirement by the end of March.

The Mid-Atlantic Chapter Board of directors will be assessing its needs and moving forward in phases. First, the chapter and National ACPA have agreed to work together to continue the chapter’s efforts in the near term. This includes any services in support of chapter members and agency customers. ACPA National will assist with communicating with the agencies with the aim to be a catalyst for policy changes that open the markets for competition from our industry.

As these near-term efforts evolve, the chapter’s board of directors anticipates that the picture of the type and expertise needed for its next executive director will become clear. This phased approach is intended to position the chapter strategically for the future.
