The American Concrete Institute (ACI) is pleased to announce that its Distinguished Achievement Award will be presented to the Florida Concrete & Products Association (FC&PA) at the ACI Spring 2011 Convention in Tampa, Fla.
During the convention's opening session on Sunday, April 3, at 5:15 p.m., the Florida Concrete & Products Association will be presented with the award, which is given to ACI nonmembers who have made notable contributions to the advancement of the concrete industry.
The Florida Concrete & Products Association, incorporated in 1956, is an association of 114 ready mixed concrete, concrete block, concrete pipe, aggregate, cement, and other concrete-related product manufacturers dedicated to promoting the use of concrete. As the largest state concrete association in the U.S., FC&PA also develops and implements numerous marketing, technical, and educational programs that focus on new innovative products as well as proper installation and construction procedures for all types of concrete products.
In addition to committing to a proactive approach with legislative, governmental, and environmental issues affecting the industry, FC&PA partners with other industry associations and Florida's major universities to ensure students in the architectural, engineering, and building construction schools have access to current technical information on concrete and concrete products. The concrete industry contributes more than $3 billion to Florida's economy annually.
