Hello Colorado Stone, Sand & Gravel Association! Here is the current CSSGA Blog and what is going on with your aggregate trade association.
I need to start with general comments regarding the virus. YES, the issue that has disrupted everyone, killed many, and changed us all. I am hopeful we look back on the past year and use lessons learned in improving your personal situation and with those around you. While we can not get ahead of ourselves, it is great to see the vaccinations working and things are beginning to open up. Lives are beginning to get back to somewhat normal. However, as I have stated before, it is not clear what the new “normal” looks like.
As our trade association proceeds with caution and optimism, we have scheduled a Networking Event for the evening of June 15. This date is the evening of the CRMCA board meeting, and the evening before the CSSGA Board meeting on June 16. So we are hopeful those board members from beyond this area can attend. This with be in an outdoor setting at ACE EatServe in Denver. At ACE, the Eat obviously refers to good food, and the Serve refers to “ping pong”. That’s right, ping pong! So plan to attend this casual and relaxed setting to interact with business acquaintances you may not have seen in person for well over a year. Plan to attend if possible.
Additionally, 2 months later is the Summer Conference in Vail, August 12-13th. While this had been a CRMCA event, and CSSGA did a separate event later in the fall, both boards decided to pull this together for 1 joint event. I hope all can attend as it will be great to actually see people beyond the Zoom screen on our computers!
Regarding National issues, CSSGA strongly supports the national ROCKS Act.
Regarding the Colorado legislative session and our Governmental Affairs Committee.
Lastly, I want to mention the upcoming DOT Audit Webinar on May 13 which will be presented by Colorado State Patrol’s Sgt. Todd James. Register here!
Thank you, and as always, reach out with any questions and be safe.
Todd R. Ohlheiser, CAE
