The American Society of Concrete Contractors (ASCC), St. Louis, MO, announced today that its 2020 Annual Conference will be replaced with a virtual conference the same week, September 21-25.

The conference will feature seminars, roundtable (breakout) sessions on a variety of timely topics, a sponsor show case, and two award receptions, one to recognize safety achievements and a second to recognize outstanding decorative concrete projects.

Speakers will include ASCC technical director Bruce Suprenant, P.E., PhD., FACI; ASCC decorative concrete specialist Chris Sullivan; Jeffrey Coleman, The Coleman Law Firm and current ACI president; Kevin MacDonald, Beton Consulting Engineers; Chris Plue, Webcor and Sherry Perdue, Safety Performance Solutions; and Philip Donovan, Little Diversified Architectural Consulting, who will speak on “A Net Zero Reality: Lessons Learned From Designing Zero-Energy Schools”.

There will be nine roundtable discussions covering COVID-19 safety practices, the new ACI specification for polished concrete, workforce development, laser scanning, enhancing productivity, moving from hardhats to helmets, understanding specifications, onboarding new hires, and utilizing the pre-construction checklists for slabs to be polished.

Attendee fees are $125 for ASCC members and $195 for non-members, and $1000 for a place in the sponsor showcase.
