Oklahoma Concrete Pavement Conference Postponed

The OK/AR Chapter, ACPA has decided to postpone the upcoming March Annual Concrete Pavement Conference until further notice due to the current Covid-19 situation. We are monitoring the rapidly changing conditions of this pandemic and hope to be able to reschedule for sometime during the summer or early fall. Hopefully as vaccine distribution accelerates and warmer weather arrives this summer, conditions will improve to the point where we have confidence in the safety of conducting this important event. Thank you for your understanding.
