The San Diego Chapter of ACI is now in the hands of the next generation. Justin Hill as President, Casey Teng as VP and Yiwen Bu as Secretary Treasurer. Faster, smarter and able to program an iPhone without cheater glasses. I am excited to see the direction the new Board takes us. Congratulations to the new Officers and to the new Board members - two have been re-elected (Andrew Weber and Jeff Baker). The newest Board member, Jerry Presley, is another good addition from the contracting side of our industry. Our organization is healthy because of this diversity. I have attended other chapter meetings and I am always proud of the work that my predecessors have done to involve more than just ready mix guys and admix companies.
We had a great program in May put on by Peri Formwork Systems, and more programs lined up for the year. Most of our educational programs now come with Continuing Education units. Lunch and Credits for $40, not a bad deal. We have the ACI Social coming up in July at Stone Brewing again this year after last year’s great attendance. We will be asking for suggestions on meeting topics. Please think about what you would like to see in the next year for programs and get it to the Board so they can make it happen.
It has been my pleasure to lead this great Chapter again. I would be remiss if I didn’t thank the Board members who helped me run the chapter and certainly Heather Caya for all her hard work for our Chapter and for the other organizations that are lucky to have her dedication and great spirit.
Be well and happy.
ACI San Diego President 2017-2018
