In 2022, ACPA enacted a strategic plan that prioritized marketing and communications for concrete paving, particularly highlighting its role in sustainability and resiliency. The strategic plan committee, on behalf the association’s valued members, wanted to ensure policy and decisionmakers understood the positive impact concrete can have on our environment. As we’ve showcased multiple times in ACPA Today, ACPA’s White Paper on Sustainability is a significant step in promoting that message. To take it even one step further, ACPA has produced this short video making the case that sustainability and resiliency are one.  

Additionally, we recently released ACPA’s 2022 Annual Report.  As the only national trade association focused solely on promoting concrete paving, ACPA covered a lot of ground on behalf of its members. From fantastic networking opportunities to quality technical support, to the airport workshop and our fantastic award show – ACPA was tirelessly advocating and celebrating concrete pavement throughout the year. Please take the time to review the Annual Report and share with your network – we are stronger together. ACPA has a number of membership categories spanning the entire paving industry.

Recently, I was in Kansas City, MO/KS and Tucson, AZ. Thank you to all the MO/KS members, and Cindy and Feras, for making me feel welcomed. Kansas City is always one of my favorite places to travel and it proved to be a fantastic annual Chapter Workshop and a great opportunity to check out all the award-winning projects from the Chapter. Thanks also to CEMEX and new members Salt River Materials Group and Pulice for helping push the concrete paving message around Arizona. As I always say, we have a good story to tell. Thanks for waving the ACPA flag and helping us tell it.   

You’ll see registration is live for the Mid-Year Meeting. I hope to see you in Austin!
