NRMCA finished the fiscal year with a bang, reaching many of the goals that were in place for the Design Assistance Program (DAP). With over 890,000 cubic yards of concrete committed and 164 design recommendations produced for the 12-month period, the Design Assistance Program has raised the bar for the coming year.
NRMCA recently joined the Idaho Concrete and Aggregate Producers Association (ICAPA) in sponsoring a program in Boise titled "Performance Based Concrete and Concrete Overlays For Parking Lots." NRMCA Vice President, Local Paving, Don Clem, PE, provided several presentations on concrete parking lots, including overlays, as well as the NRMCA DAP program.

A recent editorial from Bloomberg Media asserts storms and flooding are damaging or destroying a growing share of the nation's 1.1 million public housing units. These homes and structures are getting replaced slowly or not at all, forcing the people who lived in them to leave their neighborhoods and often their cities. Harriet Tregoning, director of community planning and development for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) was quoted as stating, "This is an issue that HUD and public housing authorities across the country are going to have to face."
