2022 Tri State Meeting Sees Record Attendance

The 2022 Tri-State Summer meeting hosted the largest crowd ever in attendance. With more than 350 people, it was easily the best convention the Alabama, Mississippi and Tennessee Concrete Associations have had in several years.

A sense of normalcy settled over this year’s meeting with Covid restrictions lifted. As guests arrived Thursday afternoon, they were greeted by association staff members eager to please. The gifts for attendees included a backpack cooler, custom t-shirts, towels and ice cream vouchers. Thursday night’s cocktail party and buffet dinner was a great start to the long weekend, and the weather Friday and Saturday was no exception. Aside from a bit of ‘june grass’ seaweed, the water was crystal clear and the sun was shining. The golf tournament was held Friday morning at Baytown golf course so that those playing could still enjoy an afternoon on the beach which included a corn hole competition. The team of Jaimie and Clint Champion from McPherson Oil Products proved to be too much for the rest of the field.

Saturday morning’s education sessions included three amazing speakers; Larry Lodgson with Wallace, Jordan, Ratliffe & Brandt law firm, Dominic DiCenzo with the Connecticut Concrete Promotion Council and Katie Poss with NRMCA. Links to their presentations can be found below. Another afternoon on the beach followed the sessions.

As the convention ended Saturday evening, Casino Night, which is always a big hit, proved to be a fan favorite again this year.

We couldn’t have done it without our sponsors who generously donated to make this convention so successful. Thank you!
