President's Report

We are just about set to host the fall 2017 ACI Convention. Our Chapter Convention Committee under the guidance of co-chairs Chris Forster and Kirk McDonald have accepted the challenge, and the honor, of coordinating the events for “Making Connections” – this Convention’s theme. If you have not yet attended an ACI Convention this is the perfect time to do so. There are many topics available to enjoy from the Hot-Topics Session to the student competitions, or maybe just a seminar or two. Whatever your interests get yourself registered so you can join us in the Disneyland Hotel from October 15 through the 19. I promise that you will enjoy it. 

Many of you know that I have spent many years with Associated Ready-Mix (A & A Concrete) as their QC/QA Manager. I recently realized that there are two more Associated employees that favor the American Concrete Institute, maybe as much as I. Tim Daust, who is an Associated Sales Manager is the current ACI President for the Northern California / Western Nevada ACI Chapter, and my good friend in Carlsbad, Steve Venolia, is the current President for the San Diego ACI Chapter. I don’t know if this event has ever happened before, but I am so very proud of Associated for allowing us to serve our industry in such a manner. 

The next Chapter activity coming up after the Convention is the Charles Pankow Awards Luncheon scheduled once again at the San Antonio Winery on November 16th. Be sure to get your nomination paperwork in for your favorite project from this last year, because we would all like to see your company’s handwork win one of our prestigious awards. And, who knows, it may progress into one of the Projects of Excellence that ACI awards at the Convention Gala next year.  

Please join me on October 15 at the Disneyland Hotel and we’ll all enjoy the “Happiest Place on Earth” with concrete style.
