Dubai, United Arab Emirates is home to the first American Concrete Institute regional office and the organization's first physical presence outside the U.S. The Middle East Regional Office, headed by Director Ahmad Mhanna, will focus on advancing the development, dissemination, and adoption of ACI consensus-based knowledge on concrete and its uses in the Gulf Region. "This office will lead efforts to establish and nurture a wide range of strategic relationships between ACI members, chapters, companies, governmental bodies, educational institutions, and partners," he affirms. "In addition to strengthening strategic rela- tionships and increasing access to the Institute's consensus-based technical and educational resources, it is the intent of the American Con- crete Institute that our Middle East Regional Office serves as a vehicle for increasing the awareness of regional concrete design and con- struction practices," adds ACI Executive Vice President Ronald Burg, P.E. "All of us in the global concrete community can learn from and be inspired by the tremendous concrete innova- tion happening here in the Middle East." Joining Burg at an early-January reception marking the Middle East Regional Office opening were ACI President David Lange (University of Illinois); Vice President, International Relations Hassan Al Hashemi; plus, Executive Committee members Khaled Awad (past president) and Vice Presidents Jeffrey Coleman and Randall Poston.
