2016 TECHNICAL COMMITTEE MANUAL

Description

The purpose of ACI, as stated in the 1904 Charter, is: To organize the efforts of its members for a nonprofit public service in gathering, correlating, and disseminating information for the improvement of the design, construction, manufacture, use, and maintenance of concrete products and structures.

By adhering to this purpose, professionals in the concrete industry recognize ACI as a neutral platform for producing reliable technical information.

Each committee member willingly contributes his or her training and knowledge for the benefit of the public at large. By maintaining a high standard of professional and technical ability in its committee memberships, ACI publishes reliable information on concrete and its applications.

ACI has over 110 technical committees, and each has a unique mission related to a specific knowledge area, but all committees are expected to serve the public consistent with the 1904 chartered purpose.

The characteristics of ACI technical committee operations include:

(a) Open committee membership

(b) Balance/lack of dominance

(c) Coordination and harmonization of information

(d) Transparency of committee activities to public

(e) Consideration of views and objections

(f) Resolution through consensus process

The technical committee documents of the American Concrete Institute represent the consensus of the committee and ACI. Technical committee members are individuals who volunteer their services to ACI and specific technical committees.

ACI technical committee members are expected to:

(a) Hold the safety, health, and welfare of the public as their top priority

(b) Be truthful in presenting information and data during discussions, debates, and ballots concerning technical issues

(c) Act in a professional manner

(d) Conduct themselves in a manner that will bring credit to the Institute

(e) Not state that they are official representatives of an ACI committee unless authorized by the Technical Activities Committee (TAC), nor state they are official representatives of ACI unless authorized by the Board of Direction

By adhering to these characteristics, ACI committees have a reputation for operational integrity.

TAC is always looking for ways to improve and streamline committee procedures.
