2012 is off to a great start! Reed Ryan began his employment with UAPA on January 9, 2012, as our Executive Director. He hit the pavement (asphalt of course!) running and hasn't slowed down since. Thanks to all of the members that have taken time to introduce Reed to their companies and key personnel. Reed has already shown us why he was the perfect choice for this position with his abilities to organize our group better and start building key relationships within our industry. Because of this, UAPA is making great strides and new members continue to join weekly. As more members become involved we are all continuing to see the benefits of UAPA membership.
If I may, let me share both a reminder and challenge as we prepare for the 2012 Utah Asphalt Conference that will be held on March 27, 2012, at the South Towne Center in Sandy, Utah. As many of you may know, we are working closely with the Utah LTAP Center and the Asphalt Institute in preparation for a well-attended and educational event. After you pencil in this event on your own calendars, please take a moment to share an invitation to this conference with everyone involved in our industry and support UAPA as we look for sponsors and exhibitors.
Beyond the Asphalt Conference, we also have many other beneficial events coming up in the next few months. We are continuing our quarterly UDOT/UAPA meetings, forming UAPA subcommittees as needed to address industry topics, and in May we are co-hosting an Asphalt Institute training meeting.
Thanks again to everyone that is working to grow our association. Please feel free to share any suggestions or needs that UAPA can address.
