NRMCA’s 2018 Industry Data Survey Results
HOT OFF THE PRESSES! NRMCA’s Annual Industry Data Survey is a unique compilation of metrics for ready mixed concrete production and the costs associated with the sales and support of concrete. The newly-released 2018 results will be discussed from both national as well as regional perspectives. Trends and possible outcomes for the current year given varying economic and political considerations will also be highlighted. You don't want to miss this session, as this data is not available from any other source!

How to Flip a Building from Wood or Steel to Concrete
The primary goal of NRMCA’s Build with Strength program is to increase the market share of concrete buildings. One key strategy is to flip projects from wood or steel to concrete through the Concrete Design Center – where NRMCA provides design recommendations on building projects to convert them to concrete. The process includes identifying potential projects, assembling design and construction teams and meeting with decision makers – generally a developer or building owner – to convince them to use concrete. This session will help you understand how to research developers, prepare for a meeting and present a compelling case for concrete building systems.

Navigating Silica Rule Compliance
On June 23, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) implemented a new rule limiting worker exposure to crystalline silica. The new rule significantly lowers the silica level that workers may be exposed to and imposes additional requirements on employers such as ready mixed concrete producers. Compliance with the rule will present challenges for some employers. Hear what you must do, and what ready mixed concrete producers from around the country are doing to be in compliance.

Changing State and Local Building Codes in Favor of Concrete
Dramatic changes are being made to building codes allowing combustible construction to be built bigger and taller. Without significant input from the concrete industry, code officials relied on work performed by the wood industry to justify the increased risk in building with a combustible material. This session will explore the real concerns to architects, engineers, developers, contractors and fire service professionals and how NRMCA members can participate in the code development process at the state and local level to reduce the impact of these changes on the concrete industry.
