Provide a platform for North American quarry members to engage and network with other quarriers and provide feedback on key initiatives and programing of the Natural Stone Institute.



  • Increase engagement. Provide Quarriers with more opportunities to be engaged and active within the association.
  • Tell the story. Develop content and tools for the entire industry to tell the story of how we quarry and fabricate natural stone. Document and communicate comparative data on natural stone’s carbon footprint, life cycle cost, and embodied energy to support industry members and document our industry’s sustainability journey.
  • Be inclusive. Insure quarriers know that they are an integral part of our association and have a platform to share and communicate their needs.
  • Expand outreach. Increase education and promotional opportunities for quarriers to share with distributors and the A&D community.
  • Natural Stone Pavilion. Explore ways to expand the presence of North American stone producers in the Natural Stone Pavilion at the annual TISE conference.
