A Word from the Executive Director 

Fall is a beautiful time of year in Colorado and we are seeing some BEAUTIFUL paving all around the state. From state highways, county roads, and city streets, to new subdivisions and parking lots, asphalt paving and surface treatment projects are being completed and we are proud of the great work of our member companies. If you are involved in a job that is substantially complete and it turned out great, consider a nomination to the CAPA “Best in Colorado” Asphalt Awards Program. We are quickly turning the corner to plan events that support our members and showcase the products and services they provide. We hope to see you before the end of the year at our All Member & Annual Projections Meeting that is planned for Friday, November 5th and the New Member Recognition Luncheon & Christmas Reception to be held on Friday, December 10. We are always looking for ways to connect with our 3 GET SOCIAL members and add value. Several key areas to get connected are environmental (EPDs), safety, Women of Asphalt, marketing, asphalt training, and quality control/specifications. Let me know if I can help to get you and your organization involved in the right area at CAPA. Keep up the GREAT work and hope to see you soon.
