Welcome to the Colorado Stone, Sand and Gravel Association’s new website.

It was determined during the strategic process undertaken by the CSSGA that its website required extensive modernization if the association was to reach its full potential.  With its increased level of functionality, which will allow improved communication within and outside of the organization, we hope you will find the new site easy to navigate.

On this website, members will have access to detailed meeting information to include presentations, access to all producer and associate members, member pricing on training material and many other benefits.  Guests will have an opportunity to review overviews of the organization’s work and high level information regarding producers and associate members. The site is the information portal for the association allowing members to remain abreast of initiatives and issues important to the industry.

In 2013, the CSSGA began a new chapter in its history as it constructed a new partnership with the Colorado Ready Mixed Concrete Association (CRMCA), capitalizing on synergies and cost savings.  While the two organizations maintain their own boards with priorities set by these boards, the CSSGA does join forces with the CRMCA and other organizations when common ground exists on issues.

CSSGA in 2014, through its members, will be working on many key areas for our industry.  In addition to the many initiatives taking place, 2014 is an election year, which presents its own set of opportunities to be addressed.  Key areas for 2014 and the group leading the effort within CSSGA are:

The success CSSGA enjoys in addressing these areas is dependent on participation of its membership.  As you review the new website, please consider what areas are of interest to you and how you might best utilize your talents to help the association achieve success in these areas for the benefit of the industry.  I look forward to working with our members in 2014 to achieve our goals while strengthening our industry.
