We will discuss the current state of the ready mixed concrete industry from both short and long-term perspectives and address such topics as population growth, current and historic ready-mix production levels and other factors on the horizon regarding the industry in evaluating the state of business.
Results from the recently-released NRMCA Industry Data Survey specific to the South Central region will also be presented.


Fresh Perspectives on Concrete Promotion Promotion is more than golf, lunch and entertaining. When it comes to converting an owner or engineer to considering concrete construction, new tools and a clear strategy are needed. The Concrete Council of St. Louis will share information about its tools including Client Profile Reports, design innovations to reduce initial costs, financing alternatives to monetize life-cycle cost savings, “packaging” public projects to create new demand, development of a municipal inspection iPhone app and an ongoing program of seminars and training for our customers and prospects. These all resulted from
thinking clearly about how to best support customers in selecting concrete.


The concrete industry, along with the rest of the nation, has been watching the mid-term election process with keen interest. Now that the ballots are counted and races called, what can we expect to see from this new Congress? How will changes on the Hill affect the nation and specifically our industry, on issues such as transportation funding, taxes, and regulatory reform.


Build With Strength continues it’s program of educating the building and design communities and policymakers on the benefits of using ready mixed concrete as THE material of choice in low– to mid -rise structures. Since it’s beginnings in 2016, significant progress has been made, but challenges still abound, such as the recent ICC vote on tall wood buildings. Learn what has been happening and how you can leverage the Build with Strength resources to engage in the fight for the future of the concrete industry!


As more local jurisdictions look to stretch their transportation infrastructure dollars, rigid pavements are being incorporated into their design standards as viable options with initial costs, many times, near other alternatives. However, institutional knowledge regarding design, construction, inspection, and maintenance of rigid pavements may be lacking or out of date. The Rigid Pavement Technical Assistance Resource for Local Jurisdictions facilitates the adoption of various forms of rigid pavements at the city and county level by assisting with the tasks of designing, specifying, detailing, constructing, and maintaining various rigid pavement types, as well as including information about other important topics such as sustainability which are becoming more and more important. In this session, the resource guide will be presented and discussed in terms of its use in promotion and technical support for local paving.
