For information on keynote and invited speakers, social and partners’ programs, accommodation and the technical program, visit: http://www.hpc-2011 . com and http://www.eventsandvenues. co.nz/EnergyEventsCentre Joint membership initiative Progress has been made on the development of a Joint Membership opportunity between the Concrete Institute of Australia (CIA) and the American Concrete Institute (ACI). An initial proposal was made by the CIA around 12 months ago. The proposal has been favourably dealt with by the ACI’s Membership Committee and has received enthusiastic support from the ACI’s Board. The CIA’s CEO and Secretary/ Treasurer recently met with the Executive team of ACI in the US and reached agreement. A draft Memorandum of Understanding has now been progressed and is awaiting finalisation. The Joint Membership will be available through subscription to all Individual Members (Individual, Individual Young, Retired and Student Members) and will include full access to the ACI’s online services and Knowledge Centre. Full details will be provided when the agreement has been finalised. This initiative will provide a significant additional service for CIA members – and is directly correlated with the strategic objectives of raising the CIA’s positioning and profile and strengthening relationships.
