NRMCA Sponsors Annual Professors Workshop

NRMCA was once again one of several industry sponsors for the annual concrete industry Professors Workshop held July 23-27 in Skokie, IL. More than 30 civil, architectural and construction engineering professors from U.S. and Canadian universities gathered state-of-the-art information on concrete design and construction. The workshop, which is organized by Portland Cement Association and co-sponsored by concrete industry associations, includes topics ranging from fundamentals of concrete materials, concrete pavements, structural concrete design for bridges and buildings, and sustainability.

Discussions enable participants to share innovative ways to teach concrete. Speakers included well known concrete educators such as Ken Hover of Cornell University, Anton Schindler of Auburn University and Jason Weiss of Purdue University, just to name a few. Industry trade groups also provide speakers. NRMCA’s Lionel Lemay presented The Role of Performance Based Specifications in Sustainable Development and provided tips for incorporating the topic of specifications into undergraduate programs.
