Hover vowed to continue Stehly's legacy in his presidency. “ACI has lost one of its most enthusiastic leaders, a dedicated and gifted visionary, and most of all, a good friend,” said Hover. “We can assure the institute and the industry that our first priority is the continued pursuit of Dick's presidential objectives.” Visit www.concrete.org.
