2016 ASA President’s Award (Left to right) Bill Drakeley and Joe Hutter The ASA President’s Award was established in 2005 to recognize the person or organization that has made exceptional contributions to the shotcrete industry. It is the sole responsibility of the current ASA President to select the recipient of this award. Since 2006, nine well-deserving individuals and one organization were Joe Hutter awarded the ASA President’s Award, all of whom dedicated their time and energy to advance the shotcrete industry. For 2016, outgoing President Bill Drakeley presented the ASA President’s Award to Joe Hutter for his outstanding service to ASA and the shotcrete industry. Hutter has been a pillar of the shotcrete community since ASA’s inception. He is a former ASA President, has been Chair of the ASA Marketing Committee since its inception, and has more than 25 years of experience in the cement/shotcrete industry. Hutter’s commitment to ASA has helped keep daily shotcrete business steady and viable, and his willingness to help any struggling Committee attain their goals is truly commendable. As Master of Ceremonies for the Annual Awards Banquet, Hutter continuously handles himself with the utmost grace and professionalism. In the rough and tumble world of sprayed concrete, Hutter’s character justifiably stands out above the rest. ASA and the entire shotcrete industry are indebted to Hutter for his generosity, commitment, and dedication. ASA Honorary Lifetime Member Award The Bylaws of the American Shotcrete Association provide for Honorary Memberships bestowed at the discretion of the ASA Board of Direction.
