The National Ready-Mixed Concrete Association and the American Society of Concrete Contractors (ASCC) have formed a task group to promote concrete paving for parking lots, and streets and local roads.NRMCA and ASCC members met during ASCC Committee Week in May. NRMCA will take on a promotion and marketing role while ASCC members will pursue a construction role. The group will be co-led by Myron Hillock of Somero Enterprises and NRMCA Senior Vice President Jon Hansen.

"This initial information meeting was well represented by an equal number of ready mix producers and concrete contractors," Hansen said. "Additionally, equipment manufacturers, cement companies, and industry suppliers attending added their support. All in attendance voted in favor of this group moving forward in partnership to expand the concrete paving market share in parking lots and streets and local roads."

Currently known simply as the Concrete Paving Task Group, the group will meet again in September in Dallas at the ASCC Annual Convention to finalize details. Anyone interested in participating in this group should contact Jon Hansen at
