Silver Spring, MD -- The National Ready Mixed Concrete Association's Materials Division has elected David Nicholson as chairman of its Board of Directors for a three-year term that concludes in 2014. The election took place last month in Las Vegas during the division's annual meeting. Nicholson will also serve as an ex officio member of the NRMCA Board of Directors.
