Rosemont, IL – October 21, 2011 – The International Concrete Repair Institute (ICRI) announces the
formation of the California State University, Chico Student Chapter. The ICRI Board of Directors approved its 34th chapter and first student chapter during the ICRI 2011 Fall Convention in Cincinnati, Ohio.
The ICRI Chapters Committee worked diligently with the Director/Program Coordinator of the Concrete
Industry Management Program in the Engineering Department of California State University Chico to revise and adapt the current new chapter kit to accommodate the needs of student chapters. The new CSU Chapter is based at California State University, Chico, with Program Coordinator Tanya Wattenburg Komas, Ph.D. as the faculty advisor. Past Chapter Committee Chair Beth Newbold said she was thrilled to have the CSU Students as the first ICRI Student Chapter as they have been extremely active at ICRI Conventions in the past two years and knows they will be an asset to the industry.
