The American Concrete Institute relies on the work of over 3,000 volunteers who serve on committees to develop the latest codes and reports related to concrete.

Why you should join a committee:

    • Increase your knowledge in areas of interest to you; there are over 100 technical, education, and certification committees dealing with diverse topics. A full list of committees is available here.
    • Meet industry leaders with similar interests: when you join ACI committees, you will interact with industry leaders–either in person or online–from across the globe with interests similar to yours, many of whom have been in the industry for decades and can help you to develop professional relationships and offer you career advice.
    • Increase your value to your employer: employers recognize the value of serving on ACI committees; and many employers actively encourage their employees to serve on ACI committees.
    • Share your knowledge: by serving on an ACI committee, you are provided the opportunity to share your knowledge on a specific topic for the benefit of the entire industry.

What Qualifications Are Required To Serve On An ACI Committee?

ACI Committee Members consist of professionals from all experience levels and all sectors of the concrete industry. While some of the members serving on committees have been active many years, students, young professionals, and industry veterans from across the globe are equally encouraged to join. It is through diversity that we strive to develop and disseminate the most advanced concrete knowledge, and we encourage you to participate by joining a committee.

Code and Board Level Committees

Some of the more well-recognized committees, such as ACI Committees 301 and 318, are code committees and do not offer "Associate Memberships." Membership on code committees, as well as Technical Activities, Education Activities, and Certification Activities Committees, is by appointment only.
