Young Leaders a Great Event


Dragline_BucketMay 16, 2011 – The NSSGA Young Leaders (YL) Annual Meeting took place this past weekend in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.  I am glad I was able to take part in such a great event. The YL meeting is a way for the younger generation (age 40 and below) to develop leadership and management skills, build a national network of industry professionals and to discuss/address industry topics. This was my first YL event AND my first visit to CEMEX FEC Quarry. As the photo of the dragline bucket depicts, I had a blast at the quarry and well, even witnessed a blast while I was there. Beyond the quarry fun, there were educational meetings, a community project with Feeding South Florida and a lot of relationship-building, which I hope turns into life-long friendships. Stay tuned for a more detailed account of my experience at the YL meeting in our upcoming issue of Rock Products. -- Josephine Smith
