All of those unusually nice winter days got everyone geared up anxious to start the season. Then, Mother Nature reminds us of who’s boss and brings in the Spring rains. Well, the rain will subside and we will be back at it. Several of us recently returned from the National Convention in Las Vegas. It was a great turnout, with educational and inspiring speakers and time to meet and talk about the industry with fellow members from all over the country. Although the economic forecast for the industry sounds positive, we all coast to coast face similar hurdles such as workforce development and regulations. I was also reminded of the all of things that NUCA offers its members from discounts on fuel, computers and shipping to safety and training programs as well as fighting for us in Washington.
Speaking of Washington…The Washington Summit is right around the corner and several us will be attending to meet with our elected officials. Hot topics are sure include various funding items, including Trump’s $1 Trillion Infrastructure Proposal as well as deregulation. It is a unique opportunity to see how Washington works and there is still time to sign up and attend.
