Amy Miller named Asphalt Pavement Alliance national director


The Asphalt Pavement Alliance (APA) named Amy Miller as the group’s new national director during the summer meeting of the State Asphalt Pavement Associations (SAPA).

Miller is a past-president of the Florida Structural Engineers Association, a Florida-licensed professional engineer, and earned a bachelor’s in environmental engineering and MBA from the University of Florida. APA says she has “an extensive background in pavement design and pavement type selection issues.” She has worked with a construction trade association, a building materials supplier and as a consulting engineer.

“I look forward to working with the APA’s partners to highlight exactly how asphalt pavements are the material of choice for ensuring quality, comfort and value for the driving public and road owners alike,” she said.

Her work with the APA will involve “coordinating and leading education and field deployment efforts for the asphalt pavement industry.” She’ll also work closely with the Asphalt Institute (AI) and National Asphalt Pavement Association (NAPA).

“The asphalt pavement industry is moving forward with many advancements that boost sustainability and pavement performance,” said NAPA President Mike Acott. “We are excited to have someone of Amy’s caliber leading our efforts to put these innovations in front of road owners and decision makers.”

“As an industry, we spend considerable resources on engineering, research, and development with a focus on quality. Amy will help ensure that this important work is put to use in the field,” said Peter Grass, AI president.

“Having Amy guide and support the industry’s field deployment efforts will help reinforce all the state-level work our associations do to ensure the public gets the best value possible out of the roads they use every day,” said Richard J. Schreck, executive vice president of the Virginia Asphalt Association and 2015 SAPA chairman.
