The Utah Asphalt Pavement Association (UAPA) is committed to being the unified voice of the asphalt industry to promote the quality and use of asphalt pavements in Utah.
update: NAPA Response to COVID-19
Attending a UAPA event is the best way to get to know our association.
It’s easy to forget the importance of being in a live face-to-face setting with others from the same business community. Being active in UAPA can bring many benefits. There is power in being connected to other people who are active in your line of work.
Check out all of our events. You can see all that we are doing to stay current in our industry and keep you connected.
what our 2020 conference attendees are saying
Membership in UAPA offers numerous benefits and keeps our members on top of important, ever-changing issues, trends and legislation within our industry.
Many of our members, however, believe the greatest benefit of being a member is the networking and camaraderie between members within our organization. The owners and employees of your company benefit, and membership also makes a positive statement to your customers. Engagement in your trade association demonstrates your commitment to staying abreast of current developments in the industry. If you are a member, we thank you for your continued renewal and if you are not, we hope that you consider joining.

We hold annual events each year for UAPA members. The main events are listed below, but we also host many more fun and educational events throughout the year.
UAPA Member Appreciation
Once each year, UAPA recognizes its membership in a lunch event that promotes networking and a lesson in axe throwing, followed by a friendly competition in an elimination style tournament. The winner gets bragging rights. This is a laid-back event that allows our membership to get to know each other, and gives the organization a way to say “thank you” for being members.
Annual UAPA Golf Classic
The UAPA Golf Classic provides a relaxed setting for golfers to associate outside of the rigors of our industry. It allows UAPA to celebrate all of the people who make our industry great and to think of others who could use extra help in our community. Join us for some good fun, a great day of golf, and an excellent way to give back to others.
UAPA FALL CONFERENCE
The Southern Utah Asphalt Seminar (SUAS) in St. George, Utah, or our “fall conference,” is UAPA’s answer to engaging our members outside of the immediate Wasatch Front area. Recognizing that we were not drawing the numbers we would like to see at the asphalt conference from other geographic areas of the state, we made the decision to take the conference on the road to those areas in need of the same quality education.
Utah Asphalt Conference
The UAPA annual conference, held every year at the end of February, focuses on the opportunities and challenges within our industry that are specific to Utah. Our general sessions and workshops will set you on course to provide superior quality pavements and gain valuable business insights. Explore new developments and discuss the hottest topics with your colleagues during this information-packed conference designed specifically for the asphalt pavement industry.
