Concrete In Australia : September 2008
FROM THE PRESIDENT Leadership through participation The Institute’s inaugural Concrete Research Forum, held in July, demonstrated that through the collaborative efforts of its members, the Institute is capable of encouraging real change and leadership across the industry. It is gratifying to hear delegate feedback from the Forum that the Concrete Institute of Australia should take the initiative of placing itself at the forefront of advancing the cause of Australian concrete research and the transfer of concrete-related technology, whether that be in design, materials or durability. As members, each of us brings to the Institute a degree of expertise in an area specifi c to our personal experience. A strong message has been taken on board that the Institute should endeavour to be the peak body in terms of facilitating future research and research-related activities throughout the concrete industry in Australia. I can assure members that the Institute’s Council will strive to meet this expectation and continue to satisfy our mission - to promote and develop excellence in concrete technology, application, design and construction throughout Australia. It is humbling to know that so many of the Institute’s members are prepared to sacrifi ce their personal time for the benefi t of the organisation and to assist in furthering the Institute’s mission. At the Concrete Research Forum there was representation from all the various sectors of the industry and key stakeholder groups. The eclectic array of experience and expertise of the Institute’s membership base was recognised and suggestions for the way forward explored. Solutions were suggested, so prioritising and allocating resources can now begin. As members, each of us brings to the Institute a degree of expertise in an area specifi c to our personal experience. In some cases members contribute in a number of fields as their experience is diverse. The Institute provides a vehicle to harness this expertise and direct it into the projects we undertake as an organisation. This enables us to continue to move forward in an unbiased and uniform manner. As Institute members we each share a common passion for concrete technology. The Concrete Research Forum was yet further proof that the signifi cant volunteer efforts of our members allows each of us to benefi t from and build on the experience of other members. This way we can gain perspectives on areas of our industry and on subjects about which we might previously have known little.
