Paving The Way Forward In 2022: President’s Address

Achievement Highlights for 2021

Although 2021 was another challenging year, the ASCP increased the number of events and activities using online delivery. For example, ASCP’s 6th Pavements Conference, TfNSW Grey Card Courses, Jointing and Structural Detailing and Principles and Practices courses.

Corporate members involved with the ASCP played a vital role in the viability of the ASCP in the last year. In 2022, we continue to expand our partnering agreements, striking new agreements with Austroads, CCAA, EuPave and ARRB.

Craig Heidrich (HBM Group) was appointed Executive Director in November 2021, as part of a planned transition from our loyal friend, Kevin Abrams who was to retire in December, but sadly passed away in October. Throughout the challenges presented, Craig and his team have done an admirable job at adapting quickly into the role and readying the ASCP for 2022. Read the full summary here.

Strategic Focus for 2022

For 2022, the National Executive has mapped out focus areas for ongoing organisational improvement to the membership value proposition.  One central key is to maximise the improvements and investments made to our website, regular Score Card reporting to members, so our members can get more out of our services.

As outlined in our 2022 strategy report, we will continue to work on Pavement Notes (Maintenance, Overlays and Roller Compacted Concrete) that will then be updated on the website. There will also be a focus on continuing work on the proposed defect repair drawings for new work.  Numerous Events are planned for 2022. Check out one of our upcoming Forums and Training Courses
