Welcome to ACI Illinois

Within this website you find details about dinner meetings, events, members, and certification classes.

The Illinois Chapter of ACI is a non-profit organization with volunteer driven people whose membership includes over 250 architects, engineers, educators, manufactures, contractors, suppliers, and others with an interest in concrete. We share the mission with ACI National “to provide a comradeship in finding the best ways to do concrete work of all kinds and in spreading that knowledge.”

The local chapter hosts educational meetings in Chicago from September through April. Our dinner meetings are opportunities for members and non-members to network with others in the industry. We provide the local ACI certification programs on a regular basis and offer academic scholarships to students who are interested to pursue their career in the civil engineering community.

Our chapter was given the “Outstanding Chapter” award from ACI National; the highest award that can be given to any local chapter. We are proud of our accomplishment and could not have done it without our members. We look forward to receiving your membership application and seeing you at the next dinner meeting.

Now Accepting Henry Crown Award Nominations

Do you know someone who has made an outstanding contribution to the concrete industry? There are many talented and generous people in the Chicago area who would make good Henry Crown Award candidates. This award, sponsored by Mr. Lester Crown of Henry Crown and Company, is made to someone who has made a significant contribution to the Chicago area concrete community. Consider nominating an individual from one of the many parts of our industry; contractors, engineers, architects, suppliers, all are eligible. The Chapter recognizes the recipient of the Henry Crown Award with an article in Concrete Illinois, a presentation at the Annual Dinner on May 11, 2019, and a $1,000 contribution to the charity of the recipient's choice.

The nominating process entails getting letters of recommendation from the nominees' peers. Letters should be at least a full page long, giving specific examples of the nominee's work, actions and accomplishments. The Henry Crown Award Nominating Committee is especially interested in how the nominee got into the concrete business, and their history in the industry. The person gathering the letters should write a cover letter, highlighting the nominee's most notable accomplishments. If you wish to nominate someone, or have any questions, please contact Rich Shadle at or call him at 708-215-0555.

Nominations are due by February 28, 2019.
