President's Report

Thankfully the rain has subsided and we can all get back to producing, pumping and pouring concrete!

Last week ACI San Diego and Structural Engineers Association of San Diego teamed up to put on a lunch seminar on ACI 562-16 Concrete Repair Code. The presentation was given by Keith Kesner, a Senior Project Manager from CVM Engineers and Chair of ACI Committee 562. Big thanks to Keith as well as SEAOSD for putting it all together.

We are excited to announce our first ever Student Mixer on April 11th! Students from UC San Diego and San Diego State are invited to join us for free drinks, food, and fellowship. Come see how the San Diego Chapter of ACI can help support students pursuing a career in the construction and engineering industries. It’ll be a great opportunity for students to meet representatives from local construction companies, engineering firms, ready mix suppliers, testing labs, and other companies integral to the success of concrete construction.

The Student Mixer will be held from 5:30 PM to 8:30 PM at:

Rock Bottom Restaurant & Brewery
8980 Villa La Jolla Drive 
La Jolla, CA 92037

The ACI San Diego Concrete Awards dinner is coming up on May 3rd. Come join us for a great night and help recognize some of the amazing concrete projects built in San Diego over the last 2 years.
