The benefits of ICRI membership have almost limitless potential, based on how much you take advantage of your access to them. The greatest rewards you reap as an ICRI member match the effort you put forth in the organization and grow exponentially from there.
The following explain some of the benefits you will receive as an ICRI member.
ICRI members are recognized around the world as companies and individuals that provide the utmost quality in their products and services. It is this recognition that leads prospective customers to you through ICRI services such as our Online Membership Directory.
ICRI members are very proud of the organization they represent and know their membership brings with it a special camaraderie with the colleagues and high level of responsibility to serve the industry.
The greatest value to any professional organization is the opportunity to meet others in your industry. The people you meet and build relationships with will be the ones you can call upon when in need and will be the ones who may recommend you as a contact for a potential job.
The more involved you are with ICRI member activities, the more likely you are to be called upon by other members for guidance. It is this recognition that will propel you and your company to the forefront of the concrete repair industry.
ICRI also offers the opportunity to network with others in your area through any of our local chapters. ICRI has 35 chapters, including 2 student chapters, in metropolitan areas around the world. Chapters hold technical presentations, educational meetings, symposiums, and local conventions on repair-related topics.
Chapters also provide an outstanding opportunity to meet and build relationships with repair specialists in your area. In addition to the technical meetings, chapters also host golf outings, social evenings, dinner cruises, and other networking events.
