President's Message

Our dinner presentations are now over for the year and we ended on a high note with a great presentation from Nick Carparelli, with the New York State Concrete Masonry Association.  Nick gave a presentation that was very timely and informative as a lot of changes are happening in the specification, inspection, and testing of concrete masonry construction. If you want more information or weren’t able to attend, feel free to contact Nick directly (ncarparelli@nys-cma.org or www.nyscma.org). He will gladly help and may even schedule a talk for your firm!

To conclude the season, we have a very special banquet planned where we will honor some of the outstanding concrete and concrete masonry projects constructed in Central New York. Our Awards Program Directors, Nick Carparelli for Masonry, and John Pillar for Concrete, have done an outstanding job in guiding the judges through the process of selecting this year’s winners. There are many great projects that will be on display.

At this, we will also be electing officers to the Board of Directors of ACI CNY as part of our Annual Meeting. So please come and let your voice be heard, and remember – if you are interested in serving on the Board, please let us know!

Up for grabs again this year is a one night stay with a complimentary breakfast from the DoubleTree Hotel. This package will be awarded by random drawing from all attendees of the event – so ya gotta be here to win!  This is a spouse friendly event – you can double your chances of winning and get credit for taking your “significant other” on a date while learning about the coolest projects in CNY!

Hope to see you there,
Greg Novitzki, P.E., LEED A.P.
