National Mixer Driver Appreciation Week, October 5-9, will afford ready mixed concrete producers and their allies an opportunity to acknowledge the hard work, dedication and customer service of delivery professionals across the industry. NRMCA announced the event in conjunction with a rescheduling of this year’s National Mixer Truck Driver Championship to September 2021. The competition is a major draw of the ConcreteWorks Conference and Expo, originally set for September 25-27 in Colorado but moved to October 7-8 in virtual format.
A just-launched Mixer Driver Appreciation Week portal includes an open thank you letter from NRMCA Chairman John Carew (Carew Concrete & Supply) and President Michael Philipps; driver thank you letter template for individual producers; and, polo or T shirt, cap and tumbler store. Like the Driver Championship, Appreciation Week is sponsored by NRMCA Affiliate, the Truck Mixer Manufacturers Bureau.
