BRIEFS ACTIVITIES & APPOINTMENTS ACI PRESIDENTS WEBINAR SERIES The American Concrete Institute's Pres- idents Series of webinars debuts this month with "ACI 318: What's in Your Spec?" William E. Rushing Jr., P.E., FACI, discusses the importance of specifica- tions in realizing designer intentions for the concrete being placed and finished. Key aspects of ACI 318-14, Building Code Requirements for Structural Con- crete and Commentary, and 301-16, Spec- ifications for Structural Concrete, will be reviewed to clarify the engineer's respon- sibility in writing the material and specifying performance require- ments. Among learning objectives: • Writing a code-compliant construction specification conforming to ACI 318-14 requirements; • Specifying project concrete requirements using the designated expo- sure classes and conditions from Chapter 19 for freeze/thaw, sulfate, water contact, and corrosion protection; • Applying Chapter 26, "Construction Documents and Inspection," to write a complete project specification; and, • Understanding how to use ACI 301-16 in developing project speci- fications. A project manager for structural and mul- tidiscipline work, Rushing is a vice president at Waldemar S. Nelson & Company, Inc. in New Orleans. He served as 2014-2015 ACI president and remains active on technical, education and administrative committees. Additional Presi- dent Series webinars are scheduled for 2017, each aimed at highlighting ACI's strategic plan and informing members, chapter members, and customers. — William E.
