10 • ROCK products • March 2019 IN THE KNOW The National Stone, Sand and Gravel Association (NSSGA) kicked off its annual conven- tion prior to the AGG1 show in Indianapolis. Randy Lake, presi- dent of CRH Americas Materials, addressed association members for the final time as chairman of the association. "It was an honor to serve as NSSGA chairman this past year," Lake said. "One thing that strikes me time and time again in our businesses, and across the aggregates and building materials industry, is the common thread among our people who are committed to safety, hard work, getting things done and doing a great job. I want to thank each of you for your support and participation in your association this year. You have helped to further establish NSSGA as the advocacy leader in the construction materials industry." Bob Weldon, NSSGA's incoming chairman, talked about build- ing on the successes from 2018 as he leads the association through the next year. Weldon is the president of Weldon importantly, the content was accurate, up to date and factu- ally correct." Nearly 100 FFA students converged on the show floor the final day of the show for a special #AgtoAsphalt Day to con- nect with exhibitors and learn about rewarding industry careers.
