March 12 - MCC 30th Anniversary Topgolf Event
‚Äč
MCC is turning 30 this year! Each year MCC’s membership base has grown and the number and quality of the programs offered by MCC has grown with it. Continuing education programs, hands-on demonstrations, golf and sporting clays events, scholarships, research… The list of MCC activities is hard to keep track of even for those who are tapped in regularly.

The MCC Board of Directors and Membership Committee invite you to join us for a 30th Anniversary Celebration at Topgolf in Brooklyn Center Tuesday afternoon, March 12. The purpose of the event is to provide a fun way for our members to have a chance to network in a relaxed atmosphere while learning more about what MCC has to offer. The kicker? We want you to invite someone from your office who doesn’t currently attend MCC events – who may not even know that they’re a member. Our goal this year is to increase participation from a broader, more diverse cross-section of our current membership base. You are encouraged to invite colleagues from within your company or even someone from a company who is not currently a member but who could gain from involvement in MCC.

The event will begin with a short panel discussion that will be moderated by the 2017 MCC President, Murphy Curran (Meyer Borgman Johnson). Panelists will include four industry greats who have supported MCC since its inception - Dave Pace, Mike Ramerth, Dean Stroschein and Terry Swor. They will reminisce about how their involvement with MCC has impacted their careers and provide some insight on what they wish they knew at the beginning of their careers.

Please join us for what is sure to be an incredible event!

Where:

April 11 MN Concrete Forum: Performance Engineered Mixtures - Minnesota

The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), sixteen state departments of transportation, and four national associations representing the concrete paving industry have come together in a pooled fund project to bring together newer testing technologies to maximize concrete pavement performance. Minnesota is currently participating in this multi-year pooled fund project and shadow testing portions of the current AASHTO PP-84 standard practice. As part of this effort, the FHWA brought the mobile concrete trailer (MCT) to the I-35 concrete paving project near Forest Lake, MN. The speaker will share the results from the FHWA MCT as well as additional results from past and upcoming shadow testing projects. The presenter will be Robert Golish, PE (Minnesota Department of Transportation).
