Clark Branum, Decorative & Polished Concrete Specialist
The Voice Newsletter May 2024

Welcome to Spring 2024, even though we still have snow in some places it is officially Spring now, and work seems to be moving again. We just finished our trip to ACI in New Orleans; what a great city to visit. The meetings were very productive and the food there is amazing as always. ACI-310 guide to Decorative Concrete will submit a new revision this year for publication in 2025. We also established a new sub-committee to publish a guide for the ACI 310.1 polished finishes specification. This should be a tremendous help in broadening the reach and use of this specification. We left the conference excited about the progress the committee has made over the last two years (post-Covid). The end of April (22nd-24th), was ASCC’s Committee week, it was good seeing you all there. It was a productive time and very engaging. If you have not attended, I would recommend attending next year. It is a fantastic way to engage with the membership, committees, and our staff who always do an excellent job with this event. The hotline has been jumping this month, mostly with polished concrete calls. As membership activity increases, I use it as a gauge to measure the uptick in business. When members are busy, I find myself busier as well. Lately, I have been getting a lot of calls from not just members, but specifiers as well. It is great to get involved with projects in the planning stages and help to clarify means and methods for a specifier that seems to be a little lost. Of course, the CPC references are a key ingredient to making these jobs successful. It was good to see everyone in St. Louis!
