30 • May 2019 www.concreteproducts.com BRIEFS ACTIVITIES & APPOINTMENTS ORGANIZATIONS To recognize the recently proclaimed Con- crete Industry Day, American Concrete Pavement Association-Colorado/Wyo- ming Chapter, American Concrete Pipe Association and Colorado Ready Mixed Concrete Association members hosted leg- islators and staff late last month for a BBQ picnic lunch on the Colorado State Capitol grounds in Denver. In addition to govern- ment outreach, the associations teamed to raise awareness of the industry's key link to economic growth and sustainable develop- ment practices in the state. "Colorado recognizes the concrete industry as important to furthering devel- opment in our state and appreciates the hard work, dedication, and the efficiency of its employees," noted Governor Jared Polis in a Concrete Industry Day proclama- tion. "Concrete is a part of so many things we build," he added in a statement on the Capitol gathering. "The concrete industry is an important contributor to Colorado's infra- structure, economy, and future. We look forward to celebrating Concrete Day at the Capitol and recognizing the thousands of employees that are making a difference in our state."
