conventionMore than 290 people attended this year’s tri-state summer convention held at the Sandestin Beach Hilton. Joining us this year were the Tennessee and Mississippi Concrete Associations.

Attendees enjoyed a cocktail welcome reception and dinner on Thursday evening with Dale Henry as a special guest speaker.

The ‘dog fight’ for golfers at the Raven golf course and beach party (complete with a huge waterside) for all who attended were held Friday.

Saturday started off with the morning business meetings which included three great speakers!
Heather Brown with MTSU provided an update on the Concrete Industry Management degree available at MTSU, Larry Novak gave an impressive presentation on Burg Khalifa, the world’s tallest building and Julie Garbini provided information on the MIT Concrete Sustainability Hub’s work along with NRMCA’s Build with Strength campaign.

The morning meetings were followed by the golf tournament at the Baytowne course. The convention concluded with a buffet dinner and “Casino Night.”

Thank you to all who attended this year as well as all of our sponsors. We are already making plans for next year’s big event!
