    • To correlate all segments of the industry.


    The CIB is governed by an Executive Board , composed of the President, Vice Presidents, Secretary, Treasurer, and the immediate Past President, as well as a Board of Directors representing of allmajor sectors of the industry.


    The CIB is composed of professional firms, corporations, organizations and individuals concerned with the construction, design, teaching, testing, production, and materials supply of plain or reinforced concrete, precast prestressed, or cast-in-place or its component parts including aggregates, cement, admixtures, reinforcing steel, bar supports and wiremesh.

    The following programs support the CIB’s goal of quality concrete.

    • A program of regularmeetings, and educational seminars addressing topical aspects of design and construction tomembers and non-members up to date on industry activities.

    • The CIB conducts on a regular basis several ACI classes for the five boroughs and Westchester County. The CIB was instrumental inmaking ACI Certification an agency code requirement.

    • An Awards Dinner is held in November each year to honor completed structures which represent excellence in concrete in their architectural and, engineering design, general construction and workmanship.

    • The CIB’s Technical Committees include standing committees and those organized tomeet a particular need. Over the years the committees have earned a reputation for their contributions toward building code revisions, rules and regulations to supplement code requirements, and the preparation of manuals to set forth recommended practices.
