The Benefits of Belonging
A team of professionals ready
to help you! NRMCA members consider the
association’s professional staff as an extension of their own. Our experts in
promotion, educational development, environmental compliance, plant operations,
fleet management, safety issues, legislative action and engineering technology
are all just a phone call away!
National promotion grows the
pie The NRMCA promotion program is
focused on developing relationships with organizations that have national
operations and the potential to dramatically increase their use of ready mixed
concrete. Because opportunities identified at the national level frequently need
follow-up locally, NRMCA field promoters work closely with state associations,
regional promotion teams and members. To support this effort NRMCA provides
ongoing assistance to local volunteers from member companies that are interested
in supporting local promotion.
Advocacy at the Federal level
looks out for industry interests Without
strong representation before national lawmakers, the ready mixed concrete
industry could be left behind in the shuffle for federal dollars. NRMCA’s
professional staff of lobbyists is dedicated to securing favorable legislation
that will increase opportunities for local ready mixed concrete producers.
provides actionable information Each year, NRMCA conducts a number of
nationwide statistical surveys on topics such as fleet maintenance,
compensation, safety practices, information technology issues and the
comprehensive Industry Data Survey. These reports provide NRMCA members with
vital operational feedback by which to evaluate and improve company strength and
Environmental expertise works
for everyone NRMCA professionals work to
give guidance to local ready mixed concrete producers on changes to federal
regulations, and provide information and tools about reporting requirements that
help them understand how a simple change in purchasing practices or handling
materials may provide regulatory relief.
Safety support that makes a
difference Like environmental
regulations, compliance with OSHA requirements can seem daunting. Member
companies enjoy the benefit of having a dedicated staff to call on to answer
questions, provide tools and training, and give safety compliance guidance.
educational offerings Without
coordination, individual companies could spend millions of dollars developing
and implementing their own courses without the benefit of nationally recognized
certification. NRMCA has developed a wide range of educational courses for all
levels of your staff. Many of these courses result in valuable certifications
that could help reduce your insurance costs, improve your competitiveness in
bidding and ease regulatory oversight.
Your voice on codes and
standards Without strong representation
on codes and standards setting bodies, concrete could lose market share. NRMCA’s
participation on all major standards and codes committees counters the
aggressive tactics used by the interests of steel, wood and other construction
materials. Codes and standards are the backbone of this industry and NRMCA plays
an integral part in designing concrete’s future.
