| ASSOCIATION NEWS Special thanks are in order to ASA’s banquet sponsors, without whose generous donations this event would not be possible. A complete list of these companies can also be found in this issue, beginning on p. 12. We urge all ASA members to begin thinking now about current shotcrete projects that may be worthy of consideration in 2017 as a Thirteenth Annual ASA Outstanding Shotcrete Project. Let the outstanding projects you complete this year be the ones we celebrate at next year’s ASA Awards Banquet! The 2017 Awards Program will accept projects completed between January 1, 2015, and September 1, 2017; multiple projects may be submitted from the same company. The deadline for submissions will be October 2, 2017. Stay tuned for the announcement of a new entry format to be released this spring. This announcement, as well as others with up-to-date information on current ASA activities, is readily available when you sign up for ASA’s monthly eNewsletter, What’s in the Mix, at www.shotcrete.org/pages/ news-events/e-news-subscribe.htm. ASA AT WORLD OF CONCRETE (WOC) 2017 ASA again saw a large crowd come by the booth at this year’s event in Las Vegas. New to the ASA lineup this year was a successful launch of two concurrent certification sessions held in conjunction with the Shotcrete Nozzleman education class regularly offered at WOC. Both dry- and wet-mix certification sessions were held to complete the certification requirements for a number of candidates who participated on Tuesday in our very well-attended “Shotcrete Nozzleman Education” WOC class. Both the written and performance exams were administered, including accommodations for Spanish-speaking participants. New nozzleman certifications, re-certifications, and nozzleman-in-training designations were issued from these sessions. This was so positively received; ASA looks forward to continuing the opportunity at future World of Concrete shows.
