New, Modern Office Space Incorporates Enhanced Teleconferencing
and Information Technologies to Improve Operations
The National Asphalt Pavement Association (NAPA) has moved to new offices in Greenbelt, Maryland effective September 13, 2019.
NAPA’s new home is a modern, dynamic space that will allow the association to better serve its national membership. With expanded meeting spaces and advanced teleconferencing capabilities, the new headquarters were designed to support greater collaboration between NAPA staff and member committees and task groups, as well as to enhance the quality of NAPA webinars and educational activities.
“This move is part of NAPA’s efforts to increase its operational efficiencies and strengthen its effectiveness,” said NAPA President & CEO Audrey Copeland, Ph.D., P.E. “We are making significant improvements in information technology for the association, and this new space supports those efforts. The asphalt pavement industry is always evolving to meet America’s needs for high-performing pavements, and we too, as an association, must innovate to meet the industry’s challenges and needs.”
“This state-of-the-art facility is built with the industry in mind,” said NAPA Chairman John Harper, Senior Vice President of Construction Partners Inc. in Dothan, Alabama. “The improved technological infrastructure, as well as the convenient location, will boost how NAPA staff connects with the association’s members nationwide.”
“From Greenbelt, NAPA is just minutes away from Capitol Hill and federal agencies, as well as our partner associations in D.C., Maryland, and Virginia,” said NAPA Second Vice-Chair Jim Mitchell, President of Superior Paving Corp. in Gainesville, Virginia, and leader of the task group overseeing the NAPA headquarters project. “Space itself was designed to reflect the industry. The project architects incorporated materials and elements that reflect the materials used by the industry, as well as asphalt pavement production through to the placement of asphalt roads.”
The new offices are located at 6406 Ivy Lane, Suite 350, Greenbelt, MD 20770-1441, with convenient access to the Capital Beltway/I-495, Baltimore–Washington Parkway, and the Washington Metrorail system. Telephone (301-731-4748 or 888-468-6499) and fax (301-731-4621) numbers for the association remain unchanged.
Founded in 1955, NAPA is the only national trade association focused exclusively on the needs and interests of asphalt pavement mixture producers and paving contractors. NAPA has been based just outside Washington, D.C., in Prince George’s County, Maryland, since 1963.
Serving more than 1,100 member companies, NAPA engages with federal lawmakers and regulators, leads research into pavement performance and technological innovations, develops and promotes best practices for safety and quality, and fosters opportunities for peer exchange, leadership development, and education for the industry and its customers.
