Influence vs Expertise

Español | Translation Sponsored by TCA The Tilt-Up Concrete Association (TCA) recently published an updated list of tilt-up industry influencers. As with the first release in the spring of 2020, the announcement was shared on social media, posted on company websites, and celebrated among colleagues.

The Right Way

Español | Translation Sponsored by TCA I had the honor of filling in for Shawn Hickey during World of Concrete as I presented the 4-hour tilt-up certification preparatory seminar to a packed room of certification candidates. After giving them the disappointing news that I was their substitute teacher for the day due to Shawn being […]

Facilitating Community Action

I don’t think anyone anticipated the three historic weeks that would open 2021 and the gravity […]

Pivot and Persevere

Español | Translation Sponsored by TCA This year, we couldn’t be together. But we virtually shared space. We weren’t able to gather and share critical and valuable knowledge. But we found a way to disseminate information. We missed the live demonstrations, exhibits, and project tours. So we held them online. We couldn’t celebrate, together, the […]

The 2020 Tilt-Up Convention and Expo is Going Virtual, but it will Remain Human

Español | Translation Sponsored by TCA Countless organizations have made their event cancelation announcements over the past couple of months. The vast majority, understandably, have expressed how difficult the decision was and how unfortunate it is to be canceling. I feel for those organizations, as I understand what these events mean for our associations and […]

To Each Other, We’ve Always Been Essential

Español | Translation Sponsored by TCA If this pandemic has anything good to offer this world, it may be a new appreciation for just how connected we all are.

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 […]
