Educate

Like most industries, the aggregates industry depends on the know-how and productivity of its workforce. Unlike many industries, aggregates producers have to mix brains and brawn to produce the right products on a timely basis. The brawn can be handled with heavy equipment. The brains come from training and idea-sharing throughout the workforce. NSSGA facilitates that training with:

• AGG1 Aggregates Academy & Expo
• Monthly webinars on a variety of topics
• Professional training courses
• CONEXPO-CON/AGG education program

In a recent survey, more than 80% of members agreed that NSSGA is by far their primary source of industry information.

Participate

NSSGA adds significant value to company membership by:

• Holding annual governance and business meetings that bring together senior managers and owners from around the country to discuss common problems, opportunities and developments.
• Encouraging member involvement in areas of specific interest where they can make a positive impact on the industry.
• Creating an online, Internet-based closed social network called the Knowledge Center to enable employees of member companies to network and join in discussions and share best practices.
