The CSSGA is comprised of industry leaders, from our Producer Members to our Associate Members we are at the forefront of the aggregate industry. By creating synergies with other construction material associations, industry experts, and regulatory and elected officials we continue to build our reputation in the aggregate industry through our work in the legislative, regulatory, and compliance arenas. Read on to learn more about our member benefits.
1. Legislative Clout.
As our membership increases so does our effectiveness on presenting a unified voice for the industry. By acting together we are able to influence regulatory and legislative compliance. CSSGA’s Governmental Affairs Committee partners with the Colorado Construction Industry Coalition to influence the selection, nomination, election, appointment or defeat of candidates to federal, state or local public office and to influence ballot measures. CSSGA’s own Political Action Committee (Colorado ROCK PAC) is dedicated to advancing the aggregates industry’s priorities at the state and local level.
2. Stronger, more effective industry.
CSSGA’s ability to serve the industry is dependent on the support we get from our members. The more members we have, the stronger our resources and influence are. Increasing CSSGA membership results in improving our ability to meet the industry’s needs, both today and in the future.
