Colorado Holds Concrete Day at State Capitol

Friday, April 27, was declared by a proclamation from Colorado’s Governor Hickenlooper, as "Concrete Day at the Capital".  Over 500 legislators and staff were fed a complete barbecue lunch grilled on site. While eating, diners (shown below) were provided with industry literature and information regarding the importance of the concrete industry to Colorado’s economy.

Sponsored by the Colorado Ready Mixed Concrete Association (CRMCA), the American Concrete Paving Association – Colorado/Wyoming Chapter and the Portland Cement Association, the purpose of this event was to recognize the hard work of the Colorado legislature and staff during one of the most difficult economic periods in Colorado history. A secondary purpose was to raise the awareness of the importance of the concrete industry to the state of Colorado’s economic growth.

"Despite wind gusts of up to 35 miles per hour, we had an extremely successful event," said CRMCA Executive Director Bernie Cawley. "Many legislators took the time out of their busy schedule to sit down with us and discuss how we can work together to improve Colorado’s business climate.  We were also excited to have so much industry participation and could not conduct this size of event without a large group of dedicated volunteers".
