Promotion Committee:  The cornerstone of the Association, this committee works to expand and develop the uses for sand, gravel, limestone, and ready mixed concrete. From seminars with engineers, architects, and contractors to “Neb. Guides” and computer services with the Nebraska Extension Service, this committee strives to get the information out to help sell our products.
