The President’s Award is presented to an individual who has exhibited outstanding dedication to the mission and goals of the Association. The recipient of this award must demonstrate a diligent commitment to the preservation of the construction materials, ready mixed concrete and mining industry, and the success of the Association. “Licari was recognized for his tremendous support of the industry through his service on the State Mining and Geology Board and his dedication in advancing the industry through his participation within the organization.
