Staff Editorial As we begin a new journey into 2015, we hope that all ASA beyond. Additionally, I wish a successful year to incoming members will begin thinking about current and upcoming shot- ASA President Marcus von der Hofen, and to the entire crete projects that may be worthy of consideration for next year’s Executive Committee, Board of Directors, and committee ASA Outstanding Shotcrete Project Awards. To facilitate more members who make this association come to life with its entries, and to make it easier to submit your projects as they are member programs and services. ASA’s strong position and completed and fresh in mind, ASA is opening up the project successful programs are a direct result of all of your award submittal web page immediately after this year’s banquet hard work! in February. Any project completed be - tween January 1, 2013, and September 1, 2015, will be considered, and multiple projects may be submitted from the same company. We hope that you will submit your outstanding projects NOW, in hopes of being celebrated as an ASA award winner at our next annual banquet. Recognition of Excellence Being recognized for excellence and innovation in projects in which your com- pany has been involved could do wonders for your future! Winners receive their award and present an overview of their winning project in front of the entire shot- crete industry at the annual ASA banquet. Winning projects for each category are also published in Shotcrete magazine’s annual Awards issue, and are also noted in key news and press releases throughout the beginning of the year and featured on our Awards page of the ASA website throughout the year. What could be better than free advertising of your outstanding work? Many Thanks to President Hanskat As this magazine goes to print, Charles Hanskat is completing his 1-year term as ASA President. Having served on the Executive Committee since January 2012, he has been a strong factor in the successes of ASA over the last several years. Charles has been a pleasure to work with—always willing to step up to serve as Examiner for a certification session, review an article, or respond to a technical matter in a way that only a well-seasoned professional engineer knows how. There is no doubt that Charles’s thorough know- ledge of the entire shotcrete process—and concrete structures in general—has lent great credibility to ASA’s publications over the years. I wish Charles all the best as he con- tinues his work with ASA in 2015 and Shotcrete • Winter 2015 9
