ACI 318-19 Seminar Dates for 2020 Announced

ACI 318-19 SeminarThe American Concrete Institute is offering a new series of seminars. The goal of the ACI 318-19 seminar is to focus on the new ACI 318-19, Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete and Commentary.

“ACI 318-19: Changes to the Concrete Design Standard” seminars will also feature face-to-face interaction with highly recognized speakers. Attendees will also receive a free copy of the ACI 318-19 code requirements and presentation handouts.

The new ACI 318-19 Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete contains some of the most significant technical changes since the 1971 Code, and more than 100 additional pages of provisions compared to the 2014 Code. The first to be published since the format of ACI 318 was reorganized in 2014, it is anticipated that it will be referenced in the 2021 International Building Code (IBC). Now containing full color three-dimensional illustrations to improve clarity, ACI 318-19 features clear language and style consistency and is organized so that engineers have increased confidence they have satisfied all necessary code requirements.

The seminars will be held in cities around the U.S. They will be a chance to interact with other members and will also cover all the major changes in this new edition of the ACI Code. Additionally, the seminar will take place during the ACI Concrete Convention, in Rosemont/Chicago, IL, April 2, 2020.
