Thank You!

My fellow members of the board are a terrific group to work with, and the staff […]

Show Me

Español | Translation Sponsored by TCA The powerful rivers flowing through Missouri are connected to many aspects of the state’s history. Its title as the “Show Me State,” however, likely has origins elsewhere. Many conjecture that this memorable title came from Rep. Willard D. Vandiver’s words in 1899, when he said, “Frothy eloquence neither convinces […]

ONWARD

Español | Translation Sponsored by TCA As I mentioned in my last letter, construction innovation has been on my mind this year, and in that piece, I challenged everyone to explore innovative ways for the TCA to promote new products and services. I am happy to report that last month’s annual TCA Convention and Expo […]

Generational Shift

Español | Translation Sponsored by TCA I’m at the Marriott Marquis in Atlanta during the 2019 Tilt-Up Convention and Expo, sitting around a table with 18 founding individuals of Tilt-Up Industry Leaders of Tomorrow (TILT), the association’s new young professionals’ collaborative. We’re discussing next steps for the group, including a more focused consideration of initiatives, […]

Innovation

Español | Translation Sponsored by TCA Construction innovation has been on my mind a lot lately, as I think about how we – my teammates, my organization, those of you in the TCA and the tilt-up construction industry overall – can best meet the challenges that are facing our businesses. Labor concerns, climate change, international […]

Introducing the Tilt-Up Industry Leaders of Tomorrow (Tilt)

Español | Translation Sponsored by TCA More than 30 young professionals in the tilt-up industry entered a large ballroom at the Bellagio hotel in Las Vegas this past January, knowing very little about what they were to accomplish. They left with new friends, a stronger connection to the tilt-up community, and a fire to make […]

Thank You!

Español | Translation Sponsored by TCA First and foremost, thank you all for allowing me the honor of serving you as the 2018 TCA president. As we all know, it seems like we can never get anything on the list completed quickly enough. For example, we have had some difficulties with the videos on our […]

Dallas Interaction

Español | Translation Sponsored by TCA I want to start this off with a huge thank you to the Dallas Host Committee, TCA staff, and all the vendors and suppliers who made the 2018 TCA Convention such a success. This was the largest turnout we ever had at a convention. While I was walking the […]

Rising Expectations

Español | Translation Sponsored by TCA     Expectations are rising. Quality once celebrated has been left in the dust by a new level of craftsmanship. Concrete science that has served the building industry well for decades is being transformed by new research, breakthroughs in technology and a better understanding of its performance. Speed of […]

Impact

Español | Translation Sponsored by Nox-Crete Products Group It is difficult to start this letter without acknowledging the horrific loss of life that recently occurred in my state of Texas. Another tragic school shooting on May 18 in Santa Fe. Ten people lost their lives. It seems that in today’s times, we should be able […]

Learning From Texas

Español | Translation Sponsored by Nox-Crete Products Group I am sure there are very few instances where California wants to be more like Texas, or vice versa for that matter. However, when it comes to realizing the benefits of a market fully immersed in an industry association, everyone has a lot to learn from Texas. […]
