President's Message


Hello everyone!

It’s time once again for ACI CNY to host its Annual Design & Installation Awards Banquet! We are very excited about the projects that have been submitted for awards this year, and it will be an honor to recognize them in front of so many colleagues, friends, and industry professionals.

This year, our exclusive guest speaker will be none other than Senator Robert E. Antonacci II! He will be making the trip directly from a business meeting in Albany, so we have our fingers crossed that he will be able to join us! And, we hope to see you there!

All team members of any of the submitted projects are more than welcome to attend!

Thank You

We would like to say thank you to all of the project teams that submitted their projects for awards this year. Without the enthusiasm and participation of the local industry, we wouldn’t be able to hold this special annual event to recognize the very best completed projects in Central New York. So…THANKS!

Our Season at a Glance

Each year, our board of directors strives to put together a combination of presentations and field trips that will appeal to as large a part of our industry as possible. To see what we’ve been up to, check out our Events page.

If you would like to work with us to organize a tour of your facility, please let us know!

Program description:

ACI CNY's annual awards program aims to recognize the area's best concrete and masonry projects, while promoting the use of these materials and raising awareness.

In the fall of each year, members and non-members are invited to submit applications detailing their projects. An objective panel of judges reviews the submissions and selects the gold, silver, and bronze medal winners for both the concrete and masonry categories.

The project teams are then recognized at the Annual Awards Banquet in the spring, and receive plaques to commemorate the event.
