Rocks Build America
- Yesterday and Today
By Hal Williford,
NSSGA Chairman

Over the course
of three years,
our association
positioned itself as
the premier voice
of the aggregates
industry in
Washington D.C.

THE LAST TIME THAT we were in Las
Vegas, NSSGA unveiled a bold strategic plan to guide the association and
the industry through three years of
transformative growth.
The Rocks Build America strategic
plan set a new course for the organization to lead the policy debate
on rebuilding America's rapidly
deteriorating transportation infrastructure. I want to salute the past
chairman who, along with members
of our board of directors, volunteered
an incredible amount of their time
and talents to refocus and reposition our association and leadership
to thrive in an ever-changing business environment.
In the past three years, we focused
all of the association's efforts into
achieving four goals.
* Strengthen NSSGA's legislative
advocacy leadership role and
effectiveness in the construction
materials sector;
* Successfully advocate for
members' interests on health,
safety and environmental issues
of national importance;
* Expand NSSGA's internal and
external communication
strategies to support its priority
objectives; and
* Articulate NSSGA's value
proposition to member
companies.
I am proud that the association
was able to accomplish a tremendous
amount of progress for our industry.
Over the course of three years,
our association positioned itself
as the premier voice of the aggregates industry in Washington D.C.

Advocacy truly is Job No. 1 at NSSGA,
a phrase that our President and CEO
Michael W. Johnson has made a focus
of the association.
For the first time in a decade, a
multi-year highway bill was signed
into law. While the funding level
left a lot to be desired, the law
