The asphalt industry is not an easy place to work. There is financial uncertainty, labor issues and regulatory changes that impact how you do business every day. The good news is contractors have help.

Your local State Asphalt Pavement Association (SAPA) represents the interests of asphalt pavement producers and paving companies at the state and local level across the United States. They bring that information back to you and break it down so that it’s relevant to you and your business.

Joining your SAPA is a sound business decision that can help your company become more profitable and viable in the long term. Local meetings also provide business owners a means of networking with industry peers. Membership also means being able to keep current with the latest news on the technical, environmental/regulatory and legislative fronts and it means having a voice in the direction the industry takes.

If you haven’t already joined your SAPA, consider doing so now as the slow season approached. Many associations will hold annual meetings for their members which provide contractors with valuable training opportunities for the season ahead. Here’s a look at the meetings scheduled over the next few months:
