Hello ACI CNY chapter members, affiliates, friends, and acquaintances:
I hope all of you are enjoying the fall weather and have gotten your snow shovels and ice scrapers out of the basement! As Thanksgiving approaches, we here at ACI CNY would like to wish everyone a hearty meal and safe travels. I know many of us are busier than ever this year, but if you haven’t done so already, make sure to register for the upcoming "Introduction to Shotcrete" seminar on Wednesday, 11/15, at the DoubleTree. This event offers a PDH as well.
Our last event was a total blast at the Hanson Jamesville quarry (see a photo of our youngest participant above). Many thanks to Hanson and their quarry staff for showing our group a good time last month! We got to witness a live dynamite blast, watch the haul trucks work tirelessly, and see the enormous stone crushers in action. Also a big thank you to Greg Novitzki for organizing the event. We capped it off with a great presentation on the future of the aggregate industry while chomping on Dinosaur BBQ! I say this every time, but if you weren’t there, you really missed a great event.
Be sure to mark your calendar for our upcoming presentations and awards banquet:
-11/15 "Introduction to Shotcrete" (1 PDH)
-1/17 "Synthetic Fibers for Steel Replacement" (1 PDH)
-2/28 Masonry topic TBD
-4/4 Awards banquet
(all information can be found on our website)
Don’t forget to enter your recently completed projects for an award at our year end banquet!
