The International Concrete Repair Institute (ICRI) will hold its 2011 Spring Convention March 16-18, 2011 at The Westin Galleria in Houston, Texas. The convention is an expanded three day event and the theme will be NDE & Structural Health Monitoring. ICRI will include a full slate of thirteen technical presentations, given by knowledgeable industry experts that will cover a variety of topics relating to the needs of the concrete repair and restoration marketplace.

In addition to the technical presentations, the convention highlights include technical and administrative committee meetings, an exhibitor area, and networking luncheons. ICRI uses the spring event as an opportunity to hold a recognition luncheon in order to honor our Supporting Members, chapter award winners and Board of Directors.

In other news, a location has been chosen for ICRI’s 2011 Fall Convention. We have scheduled our fall event for October 12-14, 2011 at the Westin Cincinnati, Cincinnati, Ohio. The theme is set as Water & Waste Water Treatment Plant Repairs and will also include professional technical presentations, committee meetings and networking.

The featured program will be our 19th Annual ICRI Project Awards banquet honoring the winners of our annual contest.
