President’s Message: UAPA Newsletter September 2013

I would be remiss if I did not take this chance to thank everyone who came out and supported the Utah Asphalt Pavement Association’s 2013 Golf Classic at Eaglewood Golf Course.  We had over 150 players and sold out of all of our sponsorships two weeks before we even teed off!  Thank you for that amazing level of support! 

As one of the marquee events for UAPA each year, the tournament serves an important purpose for our industry by allowing us to interact outside of the rigors and competitiveness of our industry.  Not to say that the competition was not fierce at the tournament, but it was great to see so many colleagues and friends enjoying a day at the course.  You can find pictures of the tournament and most of foursomes that played by visiting (and hopefully ‘liking’ UAPA’s Facebook page).
More importantly, with the funds that we collected both before and during the tournament, we were able to fulfill a wish of a Utah child suffering with a life-threatening medical condition.  Special thanks to Make-A-Wish Utah for partnering with UAPA to help make Connor’s dream come true (read more here).

With the golf tournament over, the 2014 Utah Asphalt Conference is right around the corner (February 26-27, 2014) and planning for the conference has already begun.  With over 500 attendees and two full days of education at last year’s conference, we have set the bar high for 2014.  Mark your calendars now for the Utah Asphalt Conference, and I hope to see you there for the next great event for our industry!
