The Institute now has a total of thirteen position statements on various topics supporting policy positions along with state, federal, and also international programs, rules, and regulations.
The new position statement includes
Civil/Architectural/Structural Engineering Curricula: Encourage colleges and universities with civil, architectural, or structural engineering curricula to retain or include material and structural courses on design and code compliance in accordance with recognized consensus-based standards developed by accredited standards development organizations.
The Institute’s position statements focus on advocacy efforts related to both code development and adoption; and future statements may focus on other ACI programs, services, and activities. The process of creating ACI position statements was created by the ACI Board. This process better allows ACI to actively engage in advocating for ACI code adoption.
