Although many people are aware of ACI’s numerous technical committees, fewer are aware of an entity known as the ACI Foundation, which is comprised of the Strategic Development Council (SDC), the Scholarship Council (SC), and the Concrete Research Council (CRC). Briefly put, the ACI Foundation is a wholly-owned, nonprofit subsidiary of ACI, designed to assist ACI in fulfilling its mission to find and share the best ways to advance concrete knowledge. In this article, the chairs of the SDC, SC, and CRC chairs provide a brief overview of the ACI Foundation’s structure and the initiatives of its councils.
