About Us


It is my pleasure to welcome you to the improved website of the Central New York Chapter of the American Concrete Institute!

Our chapter is proud to be affiliated with ACI International, a nonprofit technical and educational society organized in 1904 and one of the world's leading authorities on concrete technology. Its purpose is to provide a comradeship in finding the best ways to do concrete work of all kinds and in spreading that knowledge. We at ACI CNY share this goal.

Our chapter is an active group, made up of local architects, engineers, contractors, suppliers, and producers. Each year, we strive to provide ACI CNY members with an abundance of learning and networking opportunities. We offer dinner seminars, certification training and testing, and an annual awards ceremony recognizing the area's best concrete and masonry projects.

I invite you to take a few minutes to browse our updated site. Please be sure to visit the Newsletter . We also offer several online features to serve our members better, including the following:

  • Membership application, renewal, and dues payment

  • Searchable member database

  • Newsletter subscription form

  • Event registration and payment

If you would like to become a member of ACI CNY, please visit the Membership page for benefits, dues, and a link to the application. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me (see Board page for contact info).

I hope you join us!
