The Asphalt Paving Association of Iowa
Asphalt Comprehensive Training (ACT) Program

OVERVIEW
The APAI is proud to announce the formation of the inaugural class of the Asphalt Comprehensive Training (ACT) Program. The ACT Program has been created in cooperation with APAI contractors, asphalt suppliers and associate members to provide a unique introduction for individuals new to Iowa’s asphalt industry. The program will provide valuable insights into all aspects of the asphalt industry including: asphalt refining, aggregate production, association membership, equipment manufacturing and purchasing, as well as, asphalt plant and laydown operations. Program members will be mentored throughout the learning process by respected leaders in Iowa’s asphalt industry and will be provided opportunities to forge new relationships amongst their peers. ACT program participants will be asked to host an event during the APAI Summer Meeting and will be required to present 30 minutes on a topic of the group’s choice at the 2017 APAI Annual Convention.
