Thankfully, Tropical Storm Alberto from earlier in the week moved out just in time for the Tri-State Summer Convention. With nearly 330 members, their families and guests attending this year’s meeting, held at the Sandestin Beach Hilton, was one of the largest ever. We were thrilled that the Tennessee and Mississippi Concrete Associations joined us again.
Attendees enjoyed a cocktail welcome reception and dinner on Thursday evening, followed by a beautiful day on the beach Friday.
Saturday started off with the morning business meetings with three great speakers including Edsel Charles with Market Graphics, John Loyer with NRMCA and Kent Estes with the Disney Company.
The morning meetings were followed by the golf tournament at the Raven course. The convention concluded with a buffet dinner and “Casino Night,” with more than $2,000 given away in prize money.
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!
