ACI Local Chapter

Minnesota Concrete Council - ACI Local Chapter

The American Concrete Institute supports Professional Local Chapters and Student Chapters throughout the world. Participation in a local chapter can be extremely rewarding in terms of gaining greater technical knowledge and networking with leaders in the concrete community.

The Minnesota Concrete Council (MCC) was established as the American Concrete Institute (ACI) Minnesota Chapter in 2019. Becoming an ACI Chapter provides MCC with additional resources from which to offer more technical based education programs in addition to its current non-ACI programming. MCC is excited to add participation in ACI Chapter events to the lists of other benefits offered to its members.

For more information on ACI Chapter Activities, contact Margaret Mills.
