Also relating to safety, Bruno said the association is working on production of safety videos which are designed as a training tool for field crews and will be shared among association members and with others in the industry.

APCA communicates information and ideas through newsletters and meetings which serve as forums for discussion of concerns and implementation of projects for the association. The 2013 annual meeting was held the past March in Kiawah Island, SC, and the midyear meeting was in September in New Orleans, LA. Association members also participated in NAOSH (North American Occupational Safety and Health) meetings as well as Caterpillar Safety Group roundtable discussions.

Bruno is division manager for Bi-Con Services Inc. His term as president will end at the APCA’s 2014 annual meeting scheduled Feb. 26 through March 2 in Santa Barbara, CA. At that meeting, Sean Renfro, senior vice president, Sunland Construction Inc., will assume the office of president.

APCA was founded in 1971 as a regional alliance of contractors to promote mutual interests and address concerns of the pipeline industry. Today the association’s membership includes members and associate members from throughout the United States. J.D. Lormand is association executive director.
