One of the APA’s primary purposes is to educate pavement designers and engineers about the latest asphalt paving specifications, best practices, and news. The APA accomplishes this by highlighting education and training efforts, exhibiting at tradeshows, and serving as a resource for our audience. Learn more about our upcoming events.
