NSSGA Convention Schedule

By |  March 2, 2015

In conjunction with AGG1 is the National Stone, Sand & Gravel Association’s (NSSGA) annual convention, which takes place March 15-18. It is an opportunity for association members to come together to help plan the group’s strategic direction. Also during the event, following the NSSGA Chairman’s Welcome Reception on March 15, Pit & Quarry will hold its annual Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony.

This year’s convention features two general sessions, each with keynote speakers and panels discussing hot topics for both the aggregates industry and the larger transportation industry.

General Session I, March 16: Safety specialists and past James Christie award winners will discuss safety- and health-related issues; a keynote will address transportation and future business models; state association executives will discuss issues on the state level.

General Session II, March 18: This session features a transportation keynote and an expert panel of national transportation association leaders.
