Page 40 of 67 March 2019 • 39 BRIEFS ACTIVITIES & APPOINTMENTS ORGANIZATIONS Concrete Pumping Association of Canada is now operating as an American Concrete Pump- ing Association chapter, but maintaining the CPAC name. A merger will give members from Canada a dedicated forum while continuing to benefit from ACPA's strong safety, training and concrete pump operator certification program. It creates what ACPA Executive Director Christi Collins calls "synergy and alignment on both sides of the border as we advocate and lobby for shared resources for the greater concrete pumping community." Concrete pumpers in the United States and Canada share many issues, including those tied to safety, workforce devel- opment and promotion, she adds. "CPAC has worked diligently for many years to create a stronger pumping industry in Canada," notes CPAC director Daryl Dika of Reach Construction Services. We're looking for- ward to the opportunities this merger will bring to strengthen the concrete pumping industry throughout Canada." More than 75 members of the Texas Aggregates & Concrete Association convened in Austin last month to meet with state legislators. "Capitol Day is always a great opportunity for our mem- bers to help educate legislators and their staffs about matters affecting our industry," says TACA President David Perkins. "It also lets us build and strengthen relationships to remind legislators how our members value and support the economy and the environment, as well as the sensible and efficient use of our state's lim- ited natural resources."
