ASA HEADQUARTERS OFFICE HOSTS SPRING MEETINGS Although ASA usually meets at the same facility in the spring and fall as The ACI Concrete Convention and Exposition, this March, with the ACI meetings nearby our office, the ASA Board decided to host our spring meetings at the ASA offices in Farmington Hills, MI, where we share office space with ACI. The meetings started on Friday, March 24, with a task group meeting of ASA members led by President Scott Rand, reviewing progress on our strategic plan and refreshing the goals and activities as we look forward. On Friday night, many of our committee and Board members enjoyed a group dinner at a nearby fine dining restaurant. Saturday morning saw our committees meet in the dualtrack format, followed by a catered lunch and finishing up the afternoon with our Board meeting. We had very favorable feedback on the facilities (provided by ACI) and the event coordination. Many thanks to Alice McComas and ACI Event Services staff for doing all the work behind the scenes to make the meetings such a great success. For more information on the business covered and results of the meetings, please refer to Scott Rand’s President’s Message, Oscar Duckworth’s (Education) Committee Chair Memo, and Charles Hanskat’s Executive Director Update also in this issue. 72 Shotcrete | Spring 2017 www.shotcrete.org
