The Community Relations Excellence Awards recognise producers’ achievements through the involvement in their community to enhance the public’s perception of their business, their facility and the industry. This year, NSSGA recognised a total of eight Gold, eight Silver and 44 Bronze winners.
“All our members are valuable contributors to their communities,” said NSSGA president & CEO Michael Johnson. “From sponsorships, to volunteer time, to community events and school engagements, our members are known for their strong Community Relations programmes."
The 2022 Gold Community Relations Excellence Award winners were recognised during the advocacy prep session on the first day of NSSGA’s Legislative & Policy Forum. The top-scoring Gold award winner, Danville Quarry of Caldwell Stone was awarded the Platinum award.
NSSGA also awarded a National Stars of Excellence Award, which is presented to an operation with multiple Gold Awards in Safety, Community Relations or Environmental Excellence within a five-year period. In the 2022 year, CEMEX’s Balcones Quarry won the Stars of Excellence for its 2022 Community Relations Excellence and 2019 Environmental Excellence Awards.
