THE CONCRETE ADVANTAGE
Build with Strength is educating the building and design communities and policymakers on the benefits of ready mixed concrete, and encouraging its use as the building material of choice for low-to mid-rise structures. Join us to learn more about these efforts, and obtain the tools necessary to stand up for stronger and more resilient buildings in your own community.

BEST PRACTICES FOR CONCRETE PARKING LOT PROMOTION
The goal of parking lot promotion is to both maintain and expand markets for concrete parking areas. To increase market share for concrete parking, there are several actions that can be taken which include implementing a design assistance pro-gram, ensuring regular and effective communications, developing quality support materials, educating respective stakeholders, promoters and customers, and implementing an effective measurement system. This presentation will cover each of these steps and how the NRMCA local paving staff can assist in parking lot promotion.

CONCRETE DESIGN CENTER
Our mission is to educate the building and design communities and policymakers on the benefits of ready mixed concrete, and encourage its use as the building material of choice for low-to mid-rise structures. No other material can replicate concrete’s advantages in terms of strength, durability, safety and ease of use.

STREETS & LOCAL ROADS - PROMOTION/ADVOCACY OVERVIEW
This presentation covers general issues and approaches appropriate for producers or a coalition of parties that are implementing a streets and roads promotion effort by covering the steps detailed in NRMCA’s Promotion and Advocacy Guide for Concrete Streets & Roads. These steps include assembling the leadership team, building a concrete paving coalition, conducting market research, developing a promotion/advocacy strategic plan, educating coalition participants, pursuing owner remedies, developing community support for local project opportunities, initiating elected-official advocacy strategies, and building support for local opportunities.
