PRESIDENTS MESSAGE / STEPHEN G. RIGGI
Well I hope that everyone made it through the holidays safe and enjoyed Family and Friends. 2018 is a new year and I for one am looking forward to hearing everyone’s success stories from 2017 and the success’s to come in 2018. There seems to be a general consensus that 2018 is going to see an upswing in the construction industry. In conversations that I’ve had, everyone seems to be very positive, this is great to be hearing, Economy is booming!!

Letter from the Secretary
So, I’m kind of new around here. I’ve been working for Upstate Rebar as their outside sales rep for almost three years now. And two years ago I was invited to an ACI lunch and learn that opened so many new doors for me. Not only was I in a room of current and potential customers, I was learning so much about concrete, the industry and how we can all help each other succeed and grow in our business. So when I learned about the opportunity to serve this organization as Secretary I jumped at it!
My first official order of business was to do what I do best, THROW A PARTY!! Friday December 1st the ACI of WNY will be hosting a FREE meet and greet happy hour starting at 3pm, with lots of food and beverages at RIVERWORKS, located at 359 Ganson St. Buffalo, NY 14203. Come join us! Meet your loyal ACI board members old and new! We look forward to seeing you there.
