The Concrete Industry Management Program (CIM) has developed into a key resource for populating the concrete industry with talented individuals with college degrees. Four universities strategically placed across the country offer four-year degrees in CIM. Today, there are more than 1,000 graduates ofthe program and another 500 students currently enrolled. This program is made possible, in large part, by thecombined efforts of the national and local concrete industry. The National Steering Committee (NSC) for CIM, incollaboration with local patron groups at all four universities, provides both funding and oversight for the program.To date, more than $6 million has been distributed to the universities to assist in the establishment and developmentof the program. If you are not fully aware of CIM, you can learn more about the program by visiting the CIM website at www.concretedegree.com
On the national level, a major source of funding for the program is the annual CIM Auction held at the World of Concrete. Over the past twelve years, the auction has raised over $8 million. Last year, the concrete industry generously donated over 150 items through both the silent and live auctions, raising nearly $1.1million for the program universities. Auction items varied from equipment and supplies, used by both producers andcontractors in the concrete industry, to exciting vacation and sports packages, personal computers and TVs. Amongthe items donated were two concrete trucks and mixers, cement, admixtures, electronics, software, forms, tools,pumps, power screeds, generators, and all-inclusive packages to the Rose Bowl, Kentucky Derby, Indianapolis 500,and The Masters to name a few. It is not an overstatement to say there was literally something for everyone.
The annual auction will be held Wednesday, Jan. 23 in the North Hall Room N262 of the Las Vegas Convention Center. The silent auction will be held from 11 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. and the live auction begins at 1 p.m.
Those interested in making a donation should contact CIM Auction Committee Chairman Mike Philipps or (832) 472-2314.

NEW! Construction of the Hoover Dam and Hoover Dam Bypass Presentation
Course Code: HDFP
Date/Time: Friday, January 25 | 10:00 am – 11:30 am
Location: LVCC North Hall, Room N111
History can provide insights on how to solve modern problems. In this new and exciting presentation, attendees will learn how contractors used the best-practices of the day in the construction of the Hoover Dam and the Hoover Dam Bypass Bridge. Although the construction projects were separated by 75 years, each project faced similar difficulties i.e. extreme temperatures, difficult soil condition, lack of access to the construction site, and meeting tight budgets and deadlines on a one-of-a-kind project.
Presented by Luke M. Snell, PE, FACI, Chair of ACI History Committee with Rick Yelton, Editor at Large, World of Concrete, this is a unique opportunity to see this historical project through the contractor’s eyes. Hear how engineers and architects worked together to create functional structural projects recognized as architectural icons today.
NOTE: This presentation does not include the Hoover Dam Tour scheduled 12:00 pm – 5:00 pm on Friday. Separate
registration and fee required for the tour – see HDF details.
HDFP Fee: $85; $105 after 12/3/18
SPECIAL SAVINGS: Discounted fee of $75 with purchase of either HDS or HDF tours before 12/3/18.

Decorative Concrete LIVE!
Sponsored by Concrete Decor magazine and the Concrete Decor RoadShow
Concrete: A Building Material for the Energy Conscious
Located in the Silver Lot, in front of the South Hall, the third annual Decorative Concrete LIVE! will showcase innovative construction applications for residential and retail at World of Concrete 2019. Rather than highlighting concrete’s uses in a particular environment, Decorative Concrete LIVE! will focus on how decorative and architectural concrete can positively contribute to the wants and needs of an increasingly energy-minded society. One key element of this hands-on, interactive event will be demonstrations of energy-efficient building construction techniques.
One featured method will involve insulated concrete forms (ICFs), cast-in-place, reinforced concrete building components. There are also plans for a second construction approach involving structural concrete insulated panels (SCIPs), panels with foam cores that have wire grids on each side and are faced with shotcrete.
Decorative Concrete LIVE! will again feature a wide range of exterior finishes made of cementitious materials for these and other substrates. While contractors will use materials to provide traditional-looking finishes, this popular area will introduce new finishes to the concrete construction industry. Pervious concrete, a porous material that helps reduce stormwater runoff and recharge groundwater, will be among this year’s sustainable products featured at Decorative Concrete LIVE! Also known as permeable concrete, it is among the Best Management Practices recommended by the Environmental Protection Agency to control stormwater and reduce a community’s reliance on water treatment facilities.
This area will also show how decorative concrete construction materials and techniques can be blended in with other energy-saving features on commercial and residential projects. One design feature in the works includes a solar array on a concrete rooftop that could also serve as a decorative-type cladding that generates power to offset utility costs.
For more information on how you or your company can become involved with Decororative Concrete LIVE! in 2019, call (877) 935-8906.

Discussions will include system technology and the resulting improvements in jobsite productivity, safety
and cost while producing a concrete system that is highly durable and from a single-supplier ensuring compatibility.
· Fiber reinforcement of concrete slabs on ground
· Shrinkage reducing/compensating admixtures
· Load transfer systems
· Joint design and systems
· Proper curing of concrete
· Floor treatment
· Floor coating systems
