A big 'THANK YOU' to everyone who helped to make this year's UAPA Golf Classic a resounding success. From sponsors and participants to volunteers and vendors, please accept my gratitude for helping us raise money for the Sandy Club. The best part of working with the Sandy Club and helping them raise funds this year is the fact that 100% of our donation will be match by the Larry H. and Gail Miller Family Foundation! The kindness and goodness of this industry continues to amaze me - thank you for making a difference in the lives of children and families across the Wasatch Front.
As I stood on the 8th Hole selling Hole-In-Ones for the tournament, it was not hard to feel the chill in the air, especially with that wind blowing in morning! Feeling that chill, I realized that fall is just around the corner and that means so is the UAPA Southern Utah Seminar. Open your calendars and mark the 18th of November as a historic and important date for UAPA, for the 18th is the date for the very first UAPA Southern Utah Seminar at the Dixie Center in St. George. The Southern Utah Seminar promises to deliver a full day's worth of education, networking, and training for our industry similar to our Lunch and Learn Series and the Utah Asphalt Conference that takes place each spring.
I hope you will join us on the 18th in St. George. As an organization, we are excited to increase the depth and reach of the association by providing the same quality of presentations and presenters to other areas of the state because this truly is the Utah Asphalt Pavement Association and we need to make sure that we reach all areas of the state. Registration for the Southern Utah Seminar will open soon. There will be opportunities to sponsor, exhibit, and present at the seminar. Please do not hesitate to shoot me an email if you have an interest. More information will follow soon!
