WHAT IS THE OREGON CHAPTER OF ACI? Like ACI International, the Oregon Chapter of ACI (OACI) is a consensus organization in that its membership reflects the leadership of the Oregon concrete industry through participation by: specification writers and designers; educators; contractors; concrete producers; public officials; consultants; testing laboratories; various materials suppliers; and others. The composition of the OACI Board of Directors is intended to reflect, as best it can, the Chapter’s general membership in terms of industry type and divergent interests. THE PURPOSE OF THE OREGON CHAPTER OF ACI Although the Oregon Chapter of ACI does not directly involve itself in many of the activities of ACI International (such as the authorship of specifications standards, etc.) it does attempt to mirror ACI in one very important area – discussion and dissemination of technical information relating to concrete. In this respect, the primary interest of the Oregon Chapter of ACI is technical education. OACI may use a variety of means, including the presentation of technical seminars on subjects thought to be of interest to its constituency to satisfy that interest. BENEFITS OF MEMBERSHIP * Individual dues are $90 yearly. * Corporate dues are $400 for unlimited number of members. * Dues are tax deductible. * Discounts on the cost of attendance at OACI sponsored Technical Seminars. * Discounts on the cost of the many Technical Publications and general literature published by ACI (order literature directly through the OACI office). * We support a Student Scholarship Program to aid engineering students at Oregon’s leading universities. * Free use of our Technical Library located in Portland. Many of ACI’s most popular and useful books are available for check-out. * You receive free, “Consolidations”, a periodic newsletter produced by OACI to keep you abreast of upcoming seminars, and other chapter news. * We support and cosponsor Oregon’s Excellence in Concrete Awards program that gives significant recognition to construction projects – large and small – which are especially innovative or otherwise “excellent” in their use of concrete. * You become part of a nonprofit industry consensus organization whose primary purpose is the “advancement of concrete technology through education”. Note: Membership in the Oregon Chapter of ACI does not constitute your personal membership in ACI International, and conversely, membership in ACI International does not make you a member of OACI. They are two separate organizations as far as personal membership and dues are concerned.
