Indian Well, California February 20-22, 2018

PPRA’s annual meeting allows industry speakers and cutting-edge topics to be presented to provide opportunities for members to improve their business, keep abreast of best practices, and connect with colleagues in the industry. Attendees had the opportunity to visit with exhibitors to understand what they have to offer and how they can meet their specific needs.  PRRA also gives a platform for attendees to hear about industry-wide topics at the general sessions and then focus on presentations of specific interest in sessions programmed individually by AEMA, ARRA and ISSA.

VSS Macropaver was an exhibitor at the annual meeting.  Two of VSS Macropaver employees were in attendance, Doug Hogue General Manager & Vice President and Joe Brandenburg Brand Manager.We were very excited about the foot traffic that we encountered and with the new connections that were made.

PPRA - AEMA, ARRA, & ISSA Annual meeting

During the annual meeting in the general session PPRA announced a new website ( that will give industry manufacturers, contractors, and government agencies the tools and information to understand what treatments are needed for a particular pavement need.  It is an interactive website that incorporates the Pavement Condition Index curve with a known pavement distress or condition along with a corresponding pavement treatment to give an estimated increase in pavement condition and years of service.  The website should be launched in the summer of 2018 and will be available to all PPRA members.

As a global leader in the pavement preservation industry with its Macropaver 12D & 12E PTO line of Micro Surfacing and Slurry Seal pavers this new tool will help further the conversation with potential customers and allow them to better understand their needs.   VSS Macropaver has been and will continue to be a staunch supporter of this industry and is very excited about future opportunities to provide customers with the necessary tools and equipment to meet their needs.  We look forward to seeing you at next years annual meeting.
