What does ACI San Diego do for you?

We believe that knowing more about concrete will improve your business. ACI San Diego plans quality educational seminars on real world topics that you come across every day. There are local and national experts in the concrete field to help pass on information and answer critical questions concerning concrete. Instructors include educators, engineers, contractors, consultants, material suppliers, and others with signiÞcant expertise in the topics presented.

See something you haven't seen before. Tours are planned on a regular basis to such places as cement plants, rock quarries, and batch plants where new technologies are showcased to the industry. Visits to unique concrete projects during the construction phase.

Special events are scheduled throughout the year to help you further your business connections and relationships. These events are opportunities to get to know colleagues on a personal level that will help you meet new friends and make business relationships for mutual gain. Networking opens new opportunities for:

  • joint ventures, partnerships, needs for your services

  • needed connections and desired referrals

  • professional advice & assistance

  • forge new friendships

New Benefits for Local Chapter Members

At the fall ACI Concrete Convention and Exposition this past October the ACI Board of Direction approved a set of benefits for Local Chapter members (i.e. members of your Chapter who are not members of ACI). This program was developed to help you recruit and retain members by providing valuable ACI benefits to add to your current list of Chapter membership benefits.

As a Chapter in good standing (i.e. up-to-date Chapter Report and Officer Roster), you will now be able to offer these benefits to your members:

                   Digital (online) subscription to Concrete International magazine,

                   Three ACI University course tokens for selected on-demand training,

                   Listing in and access to the ACI Member Directory, and

                   Printable ACI Membership certificate.

These benefits are only available through membership in your Chapter. ACI will not be communicating this program to your members – that will be your job. We want your local members to recognize this as a direct benefit of belonging to your Chapter. There are absolutely no costs to your Chapter or to your members to participate.

Chapter Officer Membership Requirement

To serve as a Chapter Officer ACI Membership is required. For some Chapters, this requirement has created a barrier to attracting new and younger officer candidates. Recognizing this challenge, the Chapter Activities Committee has eliminated the ACI Membership requirement to serve as a Chapter Officer. This change is designed to help your Chapter to be more successful in developing new candidates for Chapter leadership positions.

With your ACI membership you will also receive the American Society of Concrete Contractors Newsletter which will be posted on our website and also receive the member rate on any books and or seminars you attend! Join today and be a part of the Concrete Team!
