President's Message

What a season it’s been here at ACI CNY! We started things off with a bang in September and welcomed Dr. Ken Hover to speak to us about the humble concrete delivery ticket. In October, we took a trip to Construction Robotics to get a sneak peek at the powerful software behind SAM the automated mason, and even got to watch him lay brick on site! In November, we were reminded of the dangers of respirable silica and learned about detection, prevention, and the OSHA silica standard. January brought us a wonderful and practical presentation by our very own Greg Novitzki about the Dos and Don’ts of concrete finishing. And, in February, we hosted Matthew Senecal of ACI National as he introduced us to ACI 562-16: Code Requirements for Assessment, Repair, and Rehabilitation of Existing Concrete Structures. To say his talk was eye opening would be an understatement!

The presentation season has come and gone in a flash, and we wanted to take this opportunity to thank each of our presenters, as well as all of our attendees throughout the season. Our turnout this year was great – and we want to keep it up! So, send us your thoughts or suggestions, if you have any, for future seminars/presentations/field trips! We are all ears!

As a reminder, our Design & Installation Awards Banquet is right around the corner as well. We have some excellent concrete and masonry submissions this year, and the judging is becoming harder and harder! Make sure you register for the banquet (registration for banquet sponsors is also available). We will be awarding Gold, Silver, Bronze, and Awards of Merit to our concrete and masonry submissions and will reveal the order of finish at the banquet. And, as you may have heard, we are also welcoming NYS DOT Commissioner Matt Driscoll as our guest speaker this year! Commissioner Driscoll leads a department of 8,300 employees with an annual capital program of $3.7 Billion! We are thrilled to hear what he has to say about the industry in our area.

We hope to see all of you at the banquet! Let’s end this ACI CNY season with a bang!

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