The Board of Directors of the Concrete Polishing Association of America (CPAA) announces that Creative Association Management (CAM), a subsidiary of the American Concrete Institute (ACI), will provide association management services for CPAA and direct its future growth. CAM manages the operations of several associations in the concrete industry, including the American Shotcrete Association, the International Concrete Repair Institute, and the Post-Tensioning Institute.

Roy Bowman, Chairman of the CPAA Board of Directors, said that the resources and expertise available from CAM will help develop the association further. “With CAM’s management and the passion and energy of the CPAA members, we are now poised to make an even greater impact,” Bowman said. The CPAA encourages interested contractors that have not yet joined to visit the WOC booth #S11020 and become part of the momentum.

The new Executive Director for CPAA is Nathaniel Mohler and he brings a background in the areas of continuing education and certification to the position. Since February 2012, Mohler has been an Engineer in ACI’s Professional Development department, helping to create and deliver educational products for concrete professionals. He has also assisted in the roll-out of new ACI certification programs, most recently the Adhesive Anchor Installer Program. Prior to ACI, Mohler spent nearly four years as a Concrete Engineer with the Portland Cement Association, Skokie, IL, where he developed online and classroom educational programs. He received his BS in Materials Science and Engineering-Ceramics at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Urbana, IL.

“I am excited for this opportunity to work with the dedicated members of the Concrete Polishing Association of America. I share in their passion for raising the quality of craftsmanship within the industry through education and certification,” Mohler said.

The address of the management offices for CPAA is 38800 Country Club Drive, Farmington Hills, MI 48331.
