Membership Committee

Chairman: Gerhard J.A. Kennepohl
Members: Gerald Huber, Stephen F. Brown, E. Ray Brown

The major driving force in sustaining this international forum for worldwide asphalt paving technology exchange is an active membership in ISAP. The collective expertise, combined support, and professional service of its members. Since the development and maintenance of a healthy membership is critical to the organization’s effectiveness and survival, the Membership Committee, supported by the Board, will address the marketing and selling of membership.

The immediate and high priority objective is to clearly enunciate the role for ISAP and identify the benefits of membership using the forthcoming international conference as an opportunity. The website and other practical means will be used to assist with the process. As a minimum objective, membership fee income must be increased to a level that ensures the financial viability of the Society so that its mission can be effectively delivered.
