After many years of our local chapter’s success, I am honored to be elected as the 43rd President of the ACI-La Chapter 2018, and with the help and support of the Board members and chapter members, I will do my best to continue the good work of my predecessors.
This year our goal is to continue the excellent work the chapter has accomplished through our committees such as Membership, Programs, Students, Recreation, Certification, Social Networking, and Awards, and by achieving the “ACI certification of excellence” as we had done in the preceding years. I would also like to recognize the Certification committee for their hard work in providing the ACI certification services to Louisiana and neighboring state technicians.
Our commitment to the local student chapters is as strong as ever, by reaching out to their chapter needs and promoting the ACI benefits. The scholarship program to students attending undergrad and grad schools is in full speed, with the hope that more Louisiana students take advantage of this program and keep It home..
This year the chapter will also expand on its benefits to its members and includes additional benefits provided by ACI National. All active members will be provided with:
- Free Luncheon / dinner seminars
- Membership to ACI National, that will include
- Free digital subscription to Concrete International magazine;
- Three ACI University course tokens for use on selected on demand educational training;
- Listing in the ACI national Member Directory; and
- A printable ACI membership certificate.
I would like to extend my call to all members and members to be, of our Louisiana communities to utilize and benefit from what their local ACI chapter can provide, and to highly encourage your participation with your local chapter committees and programs. Your involvement is essential for the strong future of our chapter.
ACI Louisiana Chapter President, Nick Maalouli
