From The President

Your Local ACI Chapter – Abiding Service to the Concrete Industry

I am honored to lead our Northern California - Western Nevada ACI chapter this year.

I want to acknowledge our Board and the past leadership provided by Robert Hightower that helped us navigate through the challenges 2020 brought our organization.  During the difficult times, our committed Certification Program staff partnered with local companies to continue to offer safe and compliant certifications.  We now have a new normal, but we are continuing to serve our industry.

This Chapter has provided technical and professional industry expertise to Northern California and Western Nevada for 63 years now.  All of our volunteers, past and present, have allowed us to stand strong in our local industry, and we look forward to building upon this is the future.

I want to thank all our members for your continued support, participation, and enthusiasm.  We are now back to in-person meetings, and I look forward to seeing you at our next one!

Thank you for your interest in Chapter membership! 

Jaymi Fridley
Chapter President

Join ACI to Increase Your Productivity and Save Time

The American Concrete Institute began in 1904, and today continues its technical standards and educational mission throughout the world on every continent except Antarctica.

Industry professionals of all skills are welcome to join ACI International. The breadth and depth of current information about concrete technology, and ACI's involvent in the Concrete Joint Sustainability Initiative, reflect the efforts of ACI International leadership, staff, and hundreds of Technical Committee volunteers who are the best at what they do.

ACI Members in good standing receive substantial discounts on seminars, publications, and manuals, now available in printed and digital formats. Students enrolled in qualifying engineering and Concrete Industry Management programs can become ACI International Student Members at no cost, and have access to a number of essential technical publications. Students can also form their own campus ACI Chapter, under the sponsorship of an existing non-student ACI Chapter in their region.

The American Concrete Institute also provides job opportunity listings for its membership and works with employers around the world to get current listings posted on the website.

Twice a year ACI Conventions bring together Technical Committee members, industry professionals of all specialties, and students from around the world for intensive discussions and competitions, a trade show, and networking on a huge scale, with the backdrop of cities whose local ACI Chapter has arranged industry-related tours, networking, and social events, and makes the Convention attendees welcome.

Please visit the ACI website - - for much more information about the value of an ACI Membership, and the membership categories and costs.


Students and the ACI

ACI Is Strongly Committed to Students

Full time students in Engineering Programs and Concrete Industry Management Programs can receive a free ACI International Student Membership, with access to many of the ACI Technical Materials. It's a great opportunity for those qualified students.

To learn more about ACI's commitment to students, visit the ACI main website.

Our Chapter provides underwriting of student competitions, such as the Concrete Canoe and ACI Student Competition. We also can help underwrite equipment purchases and other items. To find out how to qualify for underwriting, please contact us.

Throughout the year, qualifying students can attend our dinner meetings for $10, a savings of at least $25. Our meetings provide a great way to meet folks in the industry and possibly find your future at one of their companies. To learn about our meeting topics, click on the "Events" tab in the menu above and see what's coming up.

We Sponsor Two Student ACI Chapters

We are the sponsoring Chapter for the San Jose State Student Chapter and the California State University at Chico Student Chapter. Both schools have very active and strong educational programs, San Jose in engineering and Chico State in Concrete Industry Management (CIM)

Throughout our region many more schools could form Student Chapters, and ACI is ready to help enable new Student Chapters. If a student group would like to have a presentation about forming a Student Chapter please contact us. Find out more about San Jose State and Chico's Student Chapters and the events they are presenting. Both chapters can provide insights into forming and conducting ACI Student Chapters.
