Let Us Work For You

The Washington Aggregates & Concrete Association has been doing this since 1959 and continues to serve the industry to help address the issues and challenges of the way our industry does business.  The advantages of belonging to an industry trade Association are obvious when you add them up. Industry ASSOCIATIONS give you the opportunity to accomplish common objectives with support, maximize communications and information, and address Industry needs and issues with the strength of a statewide network.

Industry Advocacy and Representation
The Association is YOUR advocate for the sand, gravel, and concrete, and related businesses.  We act on your behalf before state agencies, local governments and the legislature to insure the industry perspective is considered.

Agencies tell us: "Companies that participate in their Association are much better informed about regulations and achieve greater compliance success". The Association network of member companies can help you sort through complex regulations and implement solid compliance strategies, including technical, regulatory, credit, and environmental.

The Association when necessary challenges the outcomes of court cases, agencies regulations, and to prevent overreaching or bad law from establishing bad precedents. Recent efforts include: Challenging Ecology Shoreline Guidelines, Challenging Prevailing Wage rules, Hiring legal consul for Manufacturing Sales Tax Exemption representation.
