Northern and Southern Roundtables Educate and Create Networking


The northern CA roundtable is behind us and the southern CA roundtable is on the horizon.  

Last week on Thursday May 29th, the CCSA hosted the first of two roundtables in California this year. 

The roundtable was held at the Embassy Suites in Milpitas and was attended by 14 agencies and 10 members of the association. Discussions and presentations were as follows:

  • Pavement Preservation 101, presentation by Scott Dmytrow, Telfer Oil Company and current CCSA president


  • Aggregate Gradations, presentation by Don Barrett, Graniterock and former CCSA board member


  • Emulsions, presentation by Rick Best, Reed and Graham and former CCSA board member

  • Hot Applied Binders, presentation by Jason Lampley, Intermountain and current CCSA secretary


  • State of funding for transportation in CA, presentation by Scott Metcalf, Ergon Asphalt and Emulsions and current CCSA Chairman of the Board

Following the presentations, a round table discussion was held.  Each agency was given the opportunity to discuss their particular hurdles or successes and receive input from other agency and chip seal association members present. 

Lunch was provided by the CCSA and sponsoring members of the association.  The next round table event for  2014 will be in Fullerton on June 19th.
