More than 600 aggregate industry leaders convened in Nashville for the National Stone, Sand & Gravel Association’s (NSSGA) 2022 Annual Convention, the association reports.

According to NSSGA, the 2022 meeting themed the “Power of We” stresses the importance of a united industry after accomplishing the passage of the largest infrastructure investment of all time.

“This week is critical for NSSGA members,” says Darin Matson, president and CEO of Rogers Group who also serves as NSSGA chair. “This opportunity for us to meet and share ideas makes the industry better for everyone. By working together, as a united association, we have been able to advance the issues that are at the core of each of our businesses, and those issues go beyond just infrastructure spending.”

The NSSGA Annual Convention, which takes place March 27-30, includes committee meetings, breakouts and networking events. The first general session features an NSSGA government affairs team update, followed by a three-part discussion on community engagement, with takeaways to start implementing in local communities. The breakouts are open for all, focusing on workforce development, permitting reforms and a 2022 political outlook.

“It’s been an exciting year for our industry, and I look forward to celebrating these victories with our members this week,” says Mike Johnson, president and CEO of NSSGA. “It’s also a great time to discuss the challenges ahead for the industry. That is why it’s so important for our members to attend their committee meetings as we conduct the business of the association and seek to address issues they face on a daily basis.”

NSSGA says the convention’s second day (Monday) will kick off with a CEO roundtable that features three industry CEOs. Johnson will moderate a discussion between Bond Construction Corp.’s Karen Hubacz (NSSGA first vice chair), Vulcan Materials’ Tom Hill and Blue Water Industries’ Ted Baker.

Following the convention in Nashville, NSSGA members will next convene for annual association business Sept. 20-23 in Washington for the Legislative & Policy Forum.
