2022 Inductee


When UAPA was formed, I was involved in our local leadership and recognized the need for and potential benefit of a local asphalt association.

We considered it a great opportunity to consolidate the many voices of the industry, be they producer, supplier, associate or affiliate members. UAPA gives members an opportunity to provide a unified voice and consistent platform for educational purposes and allows us to make specification and policy recommendations. It is also an opportunity to promote the benefits and share advancements of the ever-growing asphalt industry.
