A New Event for Lacombe and Red Deer Counties

On November 2, 2017, the ASGA is holding a new kind of regional gravel industry event. The Red Deer/Lacombe Gravel Industry Breakfast is a chance for members to connect with colleagues, forge new partnerships and remain current on the latest industry news.

This is a pilot project which, if successful, could spawn similar events in places like Grande Prairie, Lethbridge, Calgary and others. These breakfast events would focus on the needs of members in a specific region to ensure it is time and money well spent for every attendee.

If you're in the Red Deer or Lacombe areas, please join us. If your firm has operations in the area, encourage your colleagues and co-workers to support this venture. 

November 2, 2017
7:30 - 9:30 am
Sheraton Red Deer Hotel
3310 50th Avenue, Red Deer
Speakers include:
  • A special session from Alberta Environment & Parks on the latest area news from this department, featuring AEP staff member Don Watson.
  • Barb Miller, MLA for Red Deer South, reporting from the Alberta Legislature.
  • ASGA President Dale Soetaert reporting on CAP Levy, Government Relations, and other ASGA news! 

Tickets are limited and are just $75.00 for ASGA members, $150.00 for non-members.

We also have a small amount of exhibitor booths available for just $250.00, which includes two event tickets.

Thank you for your support!

Aggregate Facts

Did you know that for straight gravel hauls with minimal traffic, the price of aggregate increases $0.15 per tonne for every mile from the extraction site? Close to market reserves is one way the aggregate industry reduces environmental footprints and risk of accident.
