Executive Director's Message:


As I look back over the course of the last year and forward to what lies ahead for the asphalt pavement industry in terms of trends, a particular quote by Gary Hamel, a world-class leader in business management and strategy, comes to mind.  He said, "A noble purpose inspires sacrifice, stimulates innovation and encourages perseverance."  Wise words indeed for just about any of us to live by, but words that take on particular significance for the Utah Asphalt Pavement Association (UAPA) as we have carefully and thoroughly examined our purpose "to unify the voice of the asphalt industry to promote the quality and use of asphalt pavements in Utah."
