38 • March 2018 BRIEFS ORGANIZATIONS PAVEMENT GROUP ADDS KEY AFFILIATE The American Concrete Pavement Association has announced affiliation of the Florida Chapter–ACPA, expanding the Rosemont, Ill., group's network to 21 regional and local associations. Backed by ACPA National's technical, advocacy and promotional resources, Florida and other affiliated chapters support local agencies, project owners and other customers in states, provinces and regions throughout the United States and Canada. Florida Chapter–ACPA is organized under the Florida Concrete & Products Associ- ation and will represent both the national association and FC&PA in customer-facing matters related to concrete pavement technology transfer, technical service, advocacy and promotion. "Florida is vital to the growing use of concrete pavements throughout the United States," says 2018 ACPA Chairman Chuck Niederriter (Golden Triangle Construction). "We are honored to have this well-established organization as part of the ACPA network, and strongly believe the entire network will benefit from this affiliation." "This provides us an excellent opportunity to deliver education and training, as well as to avail the many strengths and resources of ACPA to the owners, contractors, engineers, and others respon- sible for the infrastructure in Florida," adds FC&PA Vice Presi- dent Matt Sitter, who will serve as Chapter senior executive and lead concrete pavement market and membership development efforts, plus technology transfer initiatives.
