President's Report

As we approach the start of Fall the nights are cooling down, kids are in school, football season is back and the ACI Golf Tournament is right around the corner! There are busy months ahead for ACI San Diego. We are only a few weeks away from our Golf Tournament on October 1st at Twin Oaks Golf Course. I am really looking forward to what is building up to be our best tournament yet! For the 3rd year in a row we have completely sold out. Thank you to all of our sponsors and golfers!

On September 8th members of the ACI San Diego Board participated in the FirefighterAid San Diego 9-11 Memorial Stair Climb at the Hilton Bayfront hotel. The event helped to raise awareness of the sacrifices made by firefighters everywhere, and to remember the 403 fallen Emergency Responders from the September 11th tragedy.  I was personally honored to climb alongside some of the brave men and women who serve as our first responders. The stair climb was physically exhausting, but uplifting and humbling at the same time. I would strongly encourage anyone to participate next year.

The Fall ACI Convention and Exposition will be in Las Vegas this year from October 13-17th. With more than 1,800 attendees, ACI conventions combine the brightest minds in concrete with an unparalleled social environment, bringing a premiere event to concrete professionals to collaborate and advance the industry and their knowledge. If you haven’t attended an ACI Convention before it is an incredible opportunity to network and attend some great seminars on relevant concrete industry topics. Please visit the website for more information: https://www.concrete.org/events/conventions/currentconvention.aspx

On November 13th  we will have a lunch seminar on the Oroville Emergency Recovery Spillways Project with an emphasis on the use of roller compacted concrete on the project. Our speaker, Joe Burke, is a Senior Engineer in the California Department of Water Resources with over 18 years of experience in the engineering and construction industry. We are looking forward to his participation. Please also keep in mind that almost all of our seminars have CEU credits available! Let us know if you need them.

We are now accepting project nominations for our Awards Banquet! If you have been a part of a project that you feel deserves to be recognized, please submit an application. Our committee strives to recognize excellence and innovation for the use of concrete as the premier architectural/structural building material. We will accept nominations for the following categories:

  1. Commercial / Industrial Building
  2. Residential Building Structure (Example: High-rise, Mid-rise, ICF, Concrete Home, Mixed use buildings utilizing concrete)
  3. Transportation / Infrastructure (Example: Streets & Intersections, Paving, Vehicular Bridges, Pedestrian Bridges, White Topping)

  5. Architectural Concrete
