The celebrating ICRI Celebrates 25 Years Serving the Repair and Restoration Industry In May of 1988, more than 70 people representing the varied aspects of the concrete repair industry gathered in Naperville, IL, to lay the groundwork for what is now known as the Interna- tional Concrete Repair Institute (ICRI). Concerned about the quality of repairs being performed, the group’s objective was to bring together those truly inter- ested in improving the concrete repair industry and use their knowledge and efforts to bring about meaningful change. What began as the International Association of Concrete Repair Special- ists (IACRS) has grown into the leading resource for education and information to improve the quality of repair, restora- tion, and protection of concrete and other structures. During its first 25 years, the organiza- tion not only changed its name but has also grown to represent more than 2000 industry professionals in con- tracting, engineering, and manufac- turing. ICRI members are directly responsible for 17 unique and essential technical guidelines that have defined quality concrete repair. ICRI has also extended its reach by chartering a total of 36 chapters across the United States and Canada, giving its membership local and national presence. To honor these and the many other achievements of ICRI, the organization will be celebrating throughout 2013, starting with a special commemorative issue of the Concrete Repair Bulletin (CRB) (January/February 2013), high- lighting the history of ICRI and cele- brating 25 years of achievements.
