Young Leaders
Meeting Sets Records
By Patrick Dunne, NSSGA
Communications Director

"Investing
in the next
generation is
what will keep
this industry
growing."
- Randy Lake

A RECORD NUMBER OF people, more than 250, attended the 2018 Young Leaders
Annual Meeting in La Jolla, Calif., in April.
The Annual Meeting brings together people from aggregates companies, equipment manufacturers and service providers for three days of networking, community
service and presentations from aggregates executives.
NSSGA Chairman Randy Lake, president of CRH Americas Materials, welcomed
the crowd with his three keys to success in the aggregates industry. "Eagerness
to learn, staying humble and the drive to make something happen. These are the
characteristics of notable leaders from across this industry," he said. "I have found
the greatest successes by building a team of smart people and empowering them
to work towards the mission of the organization."
"Make sure that you find ways to impart your experience and knowledge to others. Investing in the next generation is what will keep this industry growing," he
said, and noted that there were several people who invested in his career and skill
development as he came up in the aggregates industry. "Go into your plants and
understand the people and processes, no matter if you're in operations, management
or sales. It is one of the most valuable things you can do as a leader in this industry."
Lake then challenged the Young Leaders to become more involved in the national
association. "This is an event that continues to grow, year after year. Your national
association needs the kind of energy and enthusiasm that challenges the status
quo," he said.
Lake was one of several executives to address the Young Leaders. In addition, Ted
Baker, CEO of Bluewater Materials, Darin Matson, president and CEO of Rogers Group
Inc., John Albright, president of Caldwell Stone, Gary Hambly, president and CEO
of the California Construction and Industrial Minerals Association, and Michael W.
Johnson, NSSGA president and CEO, took time to impart advice to the Young Leaders.
