Three leading concrete industry groups today announced plans to participate in an event as part of State of Colorado recently proclaimed Concrete Industry Day, April 23.  

Governor Jared Polis recently issued the proclamation recognizing the importance of concrete to the state. The proclamation reads in part: “The State of Colorado recognizes the ready mixed concrete industry as important to furthering development in our state and appreciates the hard work, dedication, and the efficiency of its employees…”

The three industry groups include the American Concrete Pavement Association-Colorado/Wyoming Chapter, the Colorado Ready Mixed Concrete Association, and the American Concrete Pipe Association. The associations will host a picnic lunch for Colorado legislators and their staff members. The event, Concrete Day at the Capitol, will be held on the southeast corner of the Capitol grounds from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on Tuesday, April 23.

“Concrete is a part of so many things we build,” said Governor Polis. “The concrete industry is an important contributor to Colorado’s infrastructure, economy, and future. We look forward to celebrating at the Concrete Day at the Capitol BBQ and recognizing the thousands of employees that are making a difference in our state.” The Governor will attend this year’s event and address attendees.

The aim of the event is to recognize the hard work of the Colorado Legislature and their staff members, as well as to raise awareness of the importance of the concrete industry to the state of Colorado’s economic growth and sustainable development practices.
