Background & Development
ASCP operates branches in New South Wales, Queensland, and Victoria. Branches are established where there is an expressed interest from the industry to conduct forums and such events and to exchange knowledge, technical information and relevant experiences. For Branch contacts refer to ASCP Committees.
ASCP is managed through a number of committees:
|National Executive Committee||manages the overall business of the Society, including financial and governance responsibilities
|Branch Committees||identify specific state information needs, organises forums and projects
|Scholarship Committee||reviews Scholarship applications against ASCP criteria and advises the National Executive regarding granting a Scholarship Award
|Project Committees||ASCP establishes project committees to investigate and report on specific technical matters of importance. These committees are usually dissolved on completion of the project.
For a listing of all current committees refer to ASCP Committees.
ASCP supports the requirements for education of concrete pavement practitioners from professionals to the workforce. For details on all courses refer to the Events page.
Educational courses and resources developed by or supported by ASCP include :
