The goal of the annual DIL project is to broaden participants’ understanding of the ready mixed concrete industry at a national and strategic level while also giving them the opportunity to work on a diverse team with members from across the country. This peer-centric program, with its accompanying industry mentorship, encourages participants to make lifelong, career friends as they gain insight into a specific industry-specific, national challenge. The collective group will start its work this summer, meeting face to face during NRMCA’s ConcreteWorks, September 18-22, in San Antonio, and present its findings at NRMCA’s Annual Convention in March 2016.

NRMCA is celebrating its 85th year of representing the producers of ready mixed concrete and the companies that provide materials, equipment and support to the industry. It conducts education, training, promotion, research, engineering, safety, environmental, technological, lobbying and regulatory programs.
