ACI Concrete Convention

The American Concrete Institute has made the difficult but necessary decision to transition the ACI Concrete Convention from an in-person event in Raleigh, NC, USA, this October, to a 100% virtual event. There were many factors that led to this decision, but the most important was the health and safety of convention attendees and staff. All students may register for the ACI Concrete Convention for FREE. Please visit the convention page for more info.
