PRESIDENTS MESSAGE / STEPHEN G. RIGGI

October 30, 2017

As our construction season starts to wrap up, I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone that has supported and participated in the ACI of WNY. For the board, it has been a challenging year, with resignations and career changes. With that said, we have had some great people step up to the plate and offer their time, knowledge and services to the board. Therefore, I would like to thank Danielle Bickel, Secretary and Mario Avarello, Membership Chair, for helping, in this difficult transition. Also, Rick Marzullo has offered to step back into a board position as Interim Vice President. Thank you Rick, your help and knowledge is and has been a great asset to this industry and Board. We are looking to fill this position full time, so please feel free to contact any Board Member.

I would like to thank all who participated in the Annual Ray Kron Golf outing to support Autism.   This year we had 76 golfers and 16 extra for dinner. Together we raised $4000 for the Autism Foundation and as always had fun.   We were lucky to have a great day and a great course to have fun and raise some money for a deserving cause. Thank you to all!!!

You have by now received the Membership Invoicing for 2018. Your continued support is appreciated and hope you pass along to others in the industry the opportunity to become part of an organization that supports and works hard for THE CONCRETE INDUSTRY. As you know we have been lacking in the youth department for new and upcoming professionals to take over the torch for the future.   I would like to challenge you all to support a Student Member and sign up a student for only $25.00.   This I feel is one of our most important tasks of the future. We need to be sure that our industry is supported and in good hands when we turn it over. So please, all try to support the membership for yourselves and for the future.

Finally. We have gone to a new designer for our website and are under construction, but you can still make payments and sign up for our training, testing and presentations.   We have decided to go totally Credit Card based to make it more convenient and efficient for all involved.   Please visit the site often for there will be announcements on Testing and Events.

I hope to see you all at the upcoming Holiday events that are always a time to be thankful for our industry but time to reflect on our Blessings.

Be safe and Happy Holidays

Letter from the Secretary

October 30th

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.
