President's Message

Hello All,        

Our February presentation was a very interesting and technical talk. Dr. Riyad S. Aboutaha from Syracuse University presented “Fiber Reinforced Polymer (FRP) Composites in Civil Infrastructure - Research into Practice.”  We are fortunate to have an international expert who works and lives right here in CNY. Thanks to Ken Tiss at SUNY ESF for luring Dr. Aboutaha in to speak to our group! This caps our roster of dinner programs for the year, and I would like to extend a special thanks to all who presented for the chapter.

Registration is now open for the ACI CNY Design & Installation Awards Banquet (with Annual Meeting), to be held on Wednesday, April 1st. This is the most important meeting we conduct all year. At our Annual Meeting, we will be electing a new Board of Directors that will be charged with fixing all the problems I have created within the group in my two-year term…        

Click here to download this year’s election ballot, and please take a minute to complete and submit the form by March 31st. We do have “volunteers” that we have nominated for the positions of Secretary, Vice President, and President, but we will definitely entertain write-in nominations. If you are interested in joining the ACI CNY Board, please reach out to me or any of our current board members to discuss (click here for our contact info). We need your help!

Nick Carparelli (ACI CNY’s Masonry Honcho) and John Pillar (ACI CNY’s Concrete Honcho) have assured me that the projects submitted for the competition this year are all uniquely interesting. You won’t want to miss any of the nominee presentations!        

Please also remember that this is a spouse-friendly evening – a celebration of the best constructed projects of 2014. I hope to see you all there!
