OK/AR Chapter ACPA Executive Director Brent Burwell at the ACPA booth during the Fall ACCO Conference
The Association of County Commissioners of Oklahoma’s Fall Conference was well attended this year and OK/AR Chapter ACPA was represented by both staff and members. The ACPA booth saw lots of traffic from County Commissioners, their employees and our own membership. There were also plenty of great sessions to listen in on including the County Engineers forum and the General Session featuring the Lieutenant Governor.
We’re back! After more than a year break due to the COVID crisis, the OK/AR Chapter of ACPA and the Oklahoma Ready Mixed Concrete Association worked together to host a Streets & Local Roads workshop in Oklahoma City this week. Attendees heard from experts in the industry about a variety of topics related to concrete & concrete pavements. Special thanks to our speakers who delivered some great content!
The 2019 Arkansas Concrete Pavement Conference was held August 27th & 28th at the Holiday Inn Airport Hotel & Conference Center in Little Rock. Arkansas Department of Transportation Director Scott Bennett kicked off the session with a recap of this year’s legislative action.
