ICRI Southwest Florida Chapter is starting 2017 in great shape!

This fantastic Board has already chosen our fundraisers for the year! We will let everyone know the exact dates so you can mark your calendars, act as sponsors, donate to and participate! We are going to have a theme bowling party with laser tag too! Look for this in late April early May! Our second fundraiser will be sometime in September or October and will involve Clay Shooting!  Of course both events will include food and libations!

Our membership mixer is going to be pretty amazing too! Seriously, who wouldn’t enjoy a pub crawl in beautiful downtown Fort Myers. Now, you have to stay tuned in. If you are not on our email list, and would like to be, email us at  The more the merrier!

Membership is growing quickly, which is exciting! We have gone from 3 members to 21 in less than two months and before the end of the year we will be at 25 at least! Our speaker platform for the year is almost complete and we will be sending that out with save the date notices as soon as everything is confirmed.

January still needs a sponsor for the meeting! Get your company information on our web site, Facebook page and all correspondence that goes out between now and the meeting! How many of us would love to promote our Companies to Engineers, Specifiers, Contractors and other Suppliers?

Mark your Calendars for January 17, 2017. Gerry Maron, PE will be our Guest Speaker and will giving a presentation on Post Shoring. More information to follow. Our last meeting had 25 guests, so please remember to RSVP. An Event Announcement will be posted on our Facebook page: International Concrete Repair Institute Florida Southwest Chapter.

Southwest Florida really does have a great year ahead of us, fun fundraisers, great speakers, demo day, a concrete community project, fun parties and goals for giving out two nice scholarships to future Engineers!
