Stone, Sand and Gravel REVIEW - January/February 2018 - 23
| ANNUAL CONVENTION
World Class Education
THE 2018 AGG1 ACADEMY will be the largest and most
comprehensive yet. There are 56 education sessions planned
over the three days of the show, covering a wide range of
aggregates-focused topics in four targeted topic tracks.
For the first time, NSSGA will also offer a series of progressively more advanced operational topics, in response
to feedback from past attendees.
"We wanted to build on the popularity of our 101-level
courses and develop the next level of those topics for
participants who are ready for a deeper dive," explained
Joel Galassini of CEMEX, NSSGA Meetings & Education
Committee chairman. "The 201 and 301-levels also provide
a logical progression for attendees to get an in-depth look
at a particular subject."
Operations & Production
These classes cover virtually every aspect of plant operations, production, and equipment maintenance, from 101level courses to the latest technologies, processes and
products that aggregate producers are using to produce
aggregates and manage their fleets in creative and innovative ways.
