|Note: Before we present the new products offered for the 2020 construction season -- and I'm certainly proud of what we've been working on -- I do think it's important for all of us to recognize the global health pandemic caused by the coronavirus and COVID-19 disease.
We have entered a very challenging economic time in our country due to the public health emergency, and we have communities throughout our state that will be directly impacted. Our industry is no exception.
Operationally, this is something we've never experienced before. There are a whole host of concerns that we are working through right now. First on that list is making sure that all of our employees are safe. Our industry and association, like all organizations, are contending with disruptions to operations that will impact our workplace. We will keep you updated on any changes to meeting schedules, construction project details, impacts on workforce, and anything that might affect your business operations. So that's been the top-level concern.
The full extent of the impacts from the pandemic are not fully known, but WAPA will continue to keep the industry informed of pertinent information as it becomes available. As always, please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns and we'll be as of much assistance as possible.
Lastly, I hope that everyone will do their best to aid others in what will continue to be a very trying time in our state and likely throughout the country as we move forward together.
