President's Report

The old adage that success breeds success is alive and well with the ACI San Diego International Chapter. The foundation that has been laid in recent years is paying dividends. Our annual mixer was held July 11 and was our biggest mixer to date by a large margin. A diverse group of industry leaders from Architects, Engineers, Admix Suppliers, Ready Mix Suppliers and Contractors both large and small enjoyed a late afternoon of conversation and beer at Stone Brewing at Liberty Station in Point Loma. The raffle awarded a couple of lucky attendees with two 4 packs of Padres tickets and many more fun prizes. If you didn’t attend, we will do it again next year.

We have our annual Golf Tournament coming up September 11 at Twin Oaks Country Club in San Marcos. This is our annual fundraiser and supports the chapter throughout the year. Please sign up early if you would like to join in the fun. I am confident this event will sell out again this year. If you sign up before August 11 you will be entered in a raffle for a round of golf for two and a one night stay at the beautiful Rancho Bernardo Inn. There are some great corporate sponsorship levels available from the Tournament Sponsor which includes your Company name on all the carts plus a foursome and reserved seating and parking to sponsoring the Hodad’s lunch and more. We will be donating money in memory of the 9-11 First Responders this year.

Please make sure to sign up for the ACI Convention being held at Disneyland Hotel in October. It will be a great opportunity for all attendees to browse the vendor area, gain knowledge pertaining to our industry and network. You can look at the scheduled events and meetings and register at concrete.org.

We have a great ACI Chapter. I hear that every time we have an event and someone from another Chapter attends. It is all of you that make this a great Chapter through your attendance and involvement. If you would like to help with any ACI function please do not hesitate to get involved. Even if you are not on the Board your help will always be welcomed.

Note our office will be closed July 19 to July 31, 2017.

Be well and happy,

Steve Venolia
