The DIL program runs under the auspice of NRMCA’s Workforce Development Committee. Its goal is to support future executive-level talent development. While in the program, participants gain insight into critical factors at a national and strategic level. Equally critical is the opportunity to work on a diverse team from across the country. This peer-centric program, with its accompanying industry mentorship with DIL alumni and senior NRMCA staff, encourages participants to make lifelong, career friends. The collective group will meet face-to- face during NRMCA’s ConcreteWorks, October 3-7, in Kissimmee, FL, at NRMCA’s annual convention in March 2020, and gather for a summer 2020 capstone seminar before becoming DIL alumni. They, along with DIL alumni, can also attend the 2020 North American Concrete Alliance Fly-In, in March 2020 in Washington, DC.

Founded in 1930, the National Ready Mixed Concrete Association is the leading industry advocate. Our mission is to provide exceptional value for our members by responsibly representing and serving the entire ready mixed concrete industry through leadership, promotion, education and partnering to ensure ready mixed concrete is the building material of choice.
