Stockpile Reports supports the sustainability of the rock products industry through active involvement in the various state and national communities and associations.
We are excited to be a new member of the Arizona Rock Products Association. ARPA represents companies producing nearly all the aggregate materials in the State of Arizona. This includes producers or suppliers of aggregate, asphaltic concrete, ready mix concrete, asphalt and portland cement, as well as trucking firms, paving contractors and other aggregate end users, material testing labs and ancillary companies.
Other statewide organizations and associations that Stockpile Reports belong to is the Texas Aggregates & Concrete Association (TACA). TACA members represent 80% of the aggregates, 100% of the cement, and 75% of the concrete produced in Texas today. For those of you based in Texas, you may have seen Stockpile Reports’ new member profile in the 2014 TACA Conveyor magazine. Although we are also somewhat new to TACA, we’ve enjoyed the resources and connections from the association.
We are also proud members of The Indiana Mineral Aggregates Association, which represents over 90% of aggregate production in Indiana. The IMAA was founded in 1934, and continues to be very active! We’ve been members since 2013 and have found our membership with them to be invaluable. We were an exhibitor at 2014’s IMAA Winter Workshop and Trade Show, held in Indianapolis.
Close to our home base, Stockpile Reports has had an active role in the state of Washington’s Aggregates and Concrete Association. WACA membership is always working toward new environmental, land use and community solutions, to promote a cooperative relationship with the Washington citizens and communities. Stockpile Reports’ CEO David Boardman presented ‘Technology in the Palm of Your Hand’ to WACA members during a Winter Workshop.
We are also very proud members of the National Sand, Stone & Gravel Association (NSSGA). The NSSGA is the world’s largest mining association by volume and represents the construction aggregates industry. The NSSGA’s mission is to advance public policies that protect and expand the safe, environmentally responsible use of aggregates that build America’s infrastructure and economy.
The NSSGA sponsored the hugely successful AGG1 event. We were exhibiters there, and had a great time– in fact, we’ve already committed to be at the AGG1 event in 2016. Their event page has information about other upcoming events and webinars.
Stockpile Reports is a member of SME: the Society for Mining, Metallurgy & Exploration. SME is dedicated to be the premier professional society for the worldwide mining and mineral community. They have excellent benefits and resources for industry professionals. Members also receive a free monthly subscription to Mining Engineering magazine. You may have seen us in April 2015’s edition of Mining Engineering. We also exhibited in 2014’s SME conference, held in Salt Lake City, Utah.
