PCA will present the first in a series of infrastructure-related Webcasts on May 13, at 11:00 am CDT. The Webcast is free of charge.

In "Paving the Way for Economic Recovery," a 30-minute session, Brian McCarthy, PCA president and CEO, will discuss how a paradigm shift in the cost of building materials has made concrete the clear cost-effective choice in building the road to economic recovery.

This is the first in a series of four infrastructure Webcasts. Additional scheduled topics include the economic impact of stimulus funding and a legislative update.

The $787 billion economic stimulus plan in the U.S. provides a once-in-a-generation opportunity to rebuild our nation's infrastructure. With $28 billion in funds targeted to building our nation's highways and bridges, it is incumbent on decision-makers to spend this money wisely -- to create jobs, reduce energy consumption and build a solid foundation for the future.
