Following the cancellation of the ACI Concrete Convention in Rosemont/Chicago, the American Concrete Institute has transitioned its popular spring convention into ACI Virtual Committee Days. This event will take place online from March 28-April 2, 2020. The ACI Virtual Committee Days will also allow the important technical work of the Institute to move forward.
In partnership with ACI committee chairs, the American Concrete Institute has worked to provide the necessary technology and assistance to hold virtual meetings on the same day and same time (in Central Daylight Time) as physical meetings would have been held at the convention. A full list of the nearly 300 currently scheduled virtual committee meetings is available on the ACI website at ACIConvention.org. As always, ACI committee meetings are open to committee members, students, and guests. There is no cost to participate in this first-ever ACI Virtual Committee Days.
“While we are saddened to have cancelled the ACI Concrete Convention, we are pleased that so many committees remain eager to keep the critical work of the Institute moving forward,” stated Ronald G. Burg, PE, Executive Vice President, American Concrete Institute. “Additionally, this virtual format provides the opportunity for greater meeting participation from students, guests, and other interested professionals in the industry who may not have been planning to attend the convention.”
Major sponsors include Baker Concrete Construction, ForneyVault, BASF, Euclid Chemical, and GCP Applied Technologies. While the ACI will not have an exhibition hall during ACI Virtual Committee Days, they are encouraging meeting attendees to support the many industry-leading companies who had planned to exhibit at the convention; view the list at ACIConvention.org.
