President's Report

Spring Is In The Air

Hello ACI Chapter Members.  If you are like me, the spring time of the year energizes you.  Not just because of the “normal” things like flowers blooming, spring training baseball and NCAA March Madness (though those are all good reasons).  For me, it is because we just had World of Concrete and ConExpo.  We are getting ready to have ACI Spring Convention and our Semi Annual Project Awards Program is right around the corner!  THAT is what gets me charged up! 

YOUR chapter has been active and continues to bring value to you.  Vice President and Program Chair, Steve Venolia has scheduled excellent programs this year, including the January joint meeting with the local AIA chapter who heard the “Build with Strength” initiative from the Portland Cement Association and NRMCA.  The February cement plant tour at Cal Portland’s Oro Grande plant was outstanding.  And this month will have another joint meeting – this time with the structural engineers association (SEAOSD) – with a program highlighting the recent updates to ACI 318: Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete and Commentary.

So, channel your Spring energy by planning to attend our Semi Annual Project Awards Program on May 5 at the Catamaran Hotel.  Our program committee of Paul Brouwer, Jeff Ferris, Yiwen Bu, and Jacob Gottlieb have a great program in store for us as we celebrate the best of concrete construction in San Diego AND we celebrate our chapter’s 50th year in service to our local concrete design and construction industry.  See you there!
