NRMCA Vice President, Local Paving, Don Clem recently joined a host of industry colleagues in Denver at the annual Concrete Day at the Capitol. The eighth annual "Concrete Day at the Capitol," as declared by a proclamation from Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper, was a resounding success, Clem said. More than 500 legislators and staffers were fed a complete barbeque lunch grilled on site. The luncheon provided an opportunity for concrete industry representatives to visit with lawmakers regarding the importance of the concrete industry to Colorado’s economy. The event attracted 15 senators and 36 representatives for a total of 51 legislators, representing just over 50% of the entire legislature.
"The weather for the eighth annual event was absolutely perfect! We were very pleased with our member turnout, which ensured an informative experience for lawmakers," said Colorado Ready Mixed Concrete Association (CRMCA) Executive Director Todd Ohlheiser. "And we barely beat a quick spring snowstorm (five inches of snow) which moved into the region about 5 p.m.!"
The event was sponsored by CRMCA, the American Concrete Paving Association Colorado/Wyoming Chapter and the American Concrete Pipe Association to recognize the hard work of the Colorado legislature and its staffs.
