CANCELLATION NOTICE – ACI CONCRETE CONVENTION

03/11/2020
The governor of Illinois recently issued a disaster proclamation due to the COVID-19 situation.  To protect our attendees’ health and safety, the American Concrete Institute has made the decision to cancel the upcoming ACI Concrete Convention in Rosemont/Chicago, Illinois. Many attendees have notified us of travel restrictions placed upon them, and it became impossible to host a face-to-face convention.  We are sure that you have additional questions; we do, too, and are actively working to develop answers. 
As of today, March 11, 2020, we suggest you cancel any travel plans and hotel reservations related to the convention. We are also investigating alternative methods to carry on the business normally conducted in-person at convention. To have your registration fee refunded, please email your request to registrar@concrete.org and include your ACI member number and/or convention registration order number, if available, prior to March 27, 2020.  If you’d rather have your registration fee used as a donation to offset the Institute’s financial loss from cancellation of the convention, no action is needed. 
As the situation progresses and we obtain more answers, we will update you about changes and contingency plans through the ACI website and e-mail.
