2015 Membership Renewal

Thank you for your membership in the Utah Asphalt Pavement Association (UAPA) in 2014.  As a New Year is upon us, I hope you will consider renewing your membership for 2015 in this engaging and dynamic association which, I believe, is making a tremendous difference in our industry.
As we review the year that has been, here are just a few highlights that UAPA was a part of in 2014:
  • Thanks to the generous support of our members and others, UAPA successfully raised close to three thousand dollars for the Boys & Girls Club of Sandy to help troubled and disadvantaged youth living along the Wasatch Front. 
  • UAPA, through the concerted efforts of some of its members, worked with Questar Gas Company to mitigate the potential impacts of a significant rate increase to the cost of natural gas to our member companies and, more importantly, to our customers during the 2014 construction season.
  • The 2014 Utah Asphalt Conference was the largest in its history with over five hundred attendees, including fifty booth vendors, and over twenty-five different sessions of education available to attendees. The 2015 Asphalt Conference (February 25th-26th) is already on track to be even bigger and better and I hope to see all of you there!
  • This past fall, UAPA hosted its First-Annual Southern Utah Asphalt Seminar at the Dixie Center in St George. This event brought in well over one hundred attendees, more than a dozen exhibitors and sponsors, and proved to be an excellent event for many of our southern Utah members.
  • In addition to hosting our first-ever roundtable discussion for our asphalt placement contractors, we also went to work on and successfully changed a number of specifications affecting industry.  Some of the changes include UDOT’s microsurfacing specification, the APWA’s trench specification, UDOT’s binder acceptance and certification program, and an expansion to UDOT’s gradation table for HMA mixes.
There is much more we could discuss, but I hope this paints you a broad picture of an association that is actively working to make our industry and our community better.  Challenges remain, and new opportunities will certainly arise throughout 2015; that is why your continued support and participation is so vital to this association and to our industry.
Thank you for helping us to make 2014 an amazing year.  A year that saw UAPA grow and mature in many ways giving us a great vision for the future.  We look forward to your participation and to working with you this year in 2015.
