Welcome to the ACI BC Chapter web page

We hope that you find the information you are looking for here and we welcome you to come to one of our events or contact us if you want additional information.

The American Concrete Institute is the leading world authority and resource for development and distribution of standards, education, training and certification programs for individuals involved in concrete design, construction and materials.  As ACI’s representative chapter here in British Columbia we work to make these resources available, promote their use and promote best practices and education in concrete at a local British Columbia level.  This goal is accomplished primarily through monthly dinner meetings as well as an annual day long technical seminar where technical topics concerning concrete are presented by world authorities.  The proceeds of these events as well as dues help fund, amongst other things, annual scholarships as well as grants to concrete related projects at the local technical universities.  These events also provide a forum for like-minded industry professionals the opportunity to network and share knowledge of a non-commercial, technical nature.  ACI BC Chapter also administrates certification courses such as the “Concrete Field Testing Technician – Grade 1” to help maintain the high level of expertise and professionalism we have here in the BC concrete industry.

The British Columbia Chapter of the American Concrete Institute has been in existence since 1965 and assigns the highest priority to full compliance with both the letter and the spirit of the Canadian Competition Act.  The ACI BC Chapter is run by a volunteer board drawn from all aspects of the concrete industry.  Again, we hope that your visit to this site is useful to you and welcome your feedback to and participation in our industry.
