Concrete In Australia : March 2014
NEWS 4 Concrete in Australia Vol 40 No 1 Concrete Institute of Australia welcomes new CEO In December 2013, the President of the Concrete Institute of Australia, Doug Jenkins, announced the appointment of David Millar as the new Chief Executive Officer of the Institute. A civil engineer and business graduate with over 20 years’ experience, David is well known particularly through his previous role as Executive Director for the Concrete Pipe Association of Australasia, and from his long-standing involvement with the NSW Branch Committee of the Institute. David formally commenced his role as CEO on 6 January. Doug Jenkins said David offers an excellent combination of existing industry knowledge and contacts along with well-developed ideas for the continuing stability and growth of the Institute. And David said he is looking forward to continuing the Institute’s drive towards its mission, promoting and developing excellence in concrete technology, application, design and construction throughout Australia, and working closely with members, committee members, and allied industry groups to achieve this. “With a long standing involvement with the Institute I have seen, and been able to take advantage of, the many benefits the CIA has offered its members. “I’m hopeful that in my new role I’ll be able to use this experience to get closer to our members and understand what’s important to them and how we can provide greater value to the concrete industry,” David said. “Our main focus will be on delivering this value through quality education programs, technical events, and publications, as well as delivering added benefits through our alliances with the American Concrete Institute and fib. We’re also in full-swing, organising the next biennial conference which will be held in Melbourne in September 2015, which includes hosting the international RILEM conference.” David went on to add that the CIA biennial conference will remain a focal point of the Institute’s program for members, but other forms of providing education and information are always being considered. “Social media, webinars, and online learning tools have become part of everyday life and part of understanding how our members work is finding out what tools they use for research, learning and being informed, and applying those to deliver the Institute’s products,” David said. Doug welcomed David to his new position, saying the Institute is looking forward to working with him as the CIA Council, State Branches and various committee members continue to grow the Institute and maximise the benefits that are provided to members.
