Considering Pre-Disaster Preparation Guidelines

Español | Translation Sponsored by Nox-Crete Products Group The devastating damage, flooding and displacement of people resulting from Hurricane Harvey should be an opportunity to unite our deeply divided country.

Stronger

Español | Translation Sponsored by Nox-Crete Products Group As I take over the role of President, I do so knowing the TCA is stronger than it has ever been.

COMPLEXITY WITHOUT COMPLICATION: FINDING EFFECTIVE IDEAS AND TECHNOLOGY IN THE TILT-UP INDUSTRY

Español | Translation Sponsored by Nox-Crete Products Group Complication is a failure to effectively disentangle the complexities of an idea. An iPhone is incredibly complex; using one is simple (for most).

Let Your Creativity Flow

Español | Translation Sponsored by Nox-Crete Products Group We have all had projects where we were able to apply a new twist or flair to give the project owner something to differentiate from the masses. Our tilt-up industry is filled with people who think outside of the box to find solutions for some seemingly crazy […]

The Value of Wondering

Español | Translation Sponsored by Nox-Crete Products Group As he reflected on his first days as Executive Director of the Tilt-Up Concrete Association (TCA) after taking the helm some twenty-three years ago, Ed Sauter talked about sitting at his desk, dreaming up things to do. “It was an open slate,” he said. “I’d walk in […]

Program Positive

BEFORE YOU SIT DOWN WITH YOUR TEAMS TO BEGIN THE 2015 BUDGETING PROCESS, MAKE SURE BOTH YOU AND THEY ARE PROGRAMMED FOR SUCCESS. It’s hard to believe we are entering the 4th quarter of 2014 and with it comes the 2015 planning and budgeting process. What will 2015 bring? Will it be a profitable year? […]
