President's Message

Hello ACI CNY chapter members, affiliates, friends, and acquaintances:

I hope your summer was safe and sunny! It is hard to believe that September is here…it seems like yesterday that the snow finally melted, the grass turned green, and the birds started chirping again! We are gearing up for our fall program schedule and we wanted to give you an update as to what we were up to over the summer.

The board typically meets three times throughout the summer months – once each in June, July, and August. The purpose of these meetings is to brainstorm and hash out presentation topics and ideas for the upcoming season. We had some fantastic discussions, and we are very excited for this season’s schedule of events!

We are pleased to announce that on 9/20, we will once again be welcoming Dr. Ken Hover back to Syracuse to talk about the complexities of placing concrete in the various CNY weather conditions. This includes placing in both spring and fall, seasons that aren’t typically thought of as time periods where the weather can make placing concrete just as challenging as doing it in the summer or winter. Dr. Hover has been published numerous times, been the recipient of countless awards, and is one of the most dynamic, passionate, and knowledgeable concrete experts walking this earth! Click here to register. 

Also, mark these program dates in your calendars now!

9/20/17 - Dr. Ken Hover

10/18/17 - TBD

11/15/17 - "Chapter Technical Talk: Introduction to Shotcrete"

1/17/18 - TBD

2/28/18 - TBD

4/4/18 - Awards Banquet

We would also like to remind everyone that it’s not too early to start thinking about submitting projects for the 2017/2018 Excellence in Concrete and Masonry awards banquet that will be held on 4/4 in Syracuse. If you know of a project that has been or will be completed between 1/1/16 and 12/31/17, consider submitting it for an award! 

Our yearly award ceremony recognizes the best of the best for masonry and concrete design and construction in our area, and is the culmination of our program season. Award entry applications can be found on our website here.

Also, be sure to connect with us on LinkedIn.

See you on 9/20!

John Pillar, P.E., S.E.
ACI CNY President
