Southwest Florida Chapter
Share |

ICRI Southwest Florida Chapter has been so busy, both as a group and in our individual professions! We are growing, putting money away for our Scholarship Awards, attending meetings, putting together our concrete project for a deserving family and partnering up with FGCU for next years Concrete Expo, planning Certification Training for students and so much more.

Our membership is growing, our Bowling Fundraiser was a huge success and the Sport Clay Fundraiser planned for September 22, 2017 is coming together and looking like it to is going to be a huge success!

We have had some phenomenal speakers:
Michelle McIntyre, MPH, CIH, ESP Director of Environmental Health and Safety for GFA International on OSHA’s final rule regarding limiting America’s workers exposure to respirable crystaline silica. It was very informative and the debates were great! The information shared necessary.

Kelsey Hazzard, Esquire - Coleman, Hazzard, Taylor & Diaz PA on commercial and construction litigation, which really created some interesting dialog between Kelsey and the members.

Dave Fuller, BASF gave a fantastic presentation on Concrete Surface Preparation that was very educational for everyone. Even those of us that have been in the business for some years now learned a few new things. If you haven’t had the pleasure of sitting through one of his presentations, we recommend you ask him to be a speaker.

Kurt Brown, EI has been working really hard putting together speakers that not only educate us but capture our attention. Check out our Facebook Page: International Concrete Repair Institute Florida Southwest Chapter or copy - for the latest happenings and interesting bits and pieces.
