    Mark Douglas President, ACI

    Are you aware that turkeys may be in short supply this holiday season? We can thank the bird flu for introducing a concern none of us saw coming. Who would have thought that a shortage of turkeys would be a concern as we prepare for holiday celebrations with family and friends?

    Speaking of holidays and being thankful, the ACI Board and I want to thank you for being a member. If you are active (and we hope you are)

    thank you for your contributions to our industry.

    There are many reasons for belonging to an association. Here are some things I'd like you to consider. While the majority of our members state that they join for networking, there are a large number that also join for safety services – not just training, but services. Some join for education programs and many join to have access to the Construction Connection/Plan Room.

    What you may not hear are the reasons why people drop and /or do not join, which include: “don't have the time to participate”, “can't afford to pay this year”, “don't need your services” and even – “I have more work than I can handle so I don't need to be a member”.

    ACI exists for the construction industry. While I realize that benefits are unique to each company, there are many universal benefits - both immediate and in the future. One is through the impact of our collective voice, whereby ACI is the “go-to” organization with community and political leaders. Terry Phillips is frequently contacted by the media and various leaders for input and opinions on topics. Another benefit is workforce development. Worker shortages are on everyone's mind. Even non-members benefit from ACI's work in this critical need area, both with the Urban League on the Construction Connections Pre-apprenticeship Program and construction career exploration for middle school students through our work with the Spirit of Construction.

    Have you have a chance to visit the website www.buildohio.org? It is a statewide site designed for parents, educators and students geared to help them choose construction as a career.

    We still have more to do for our industry, but let's do it together. Let's build the membership, build our future and let's make our industry a top career choice of future generations. Let's keep ACI growing and strong.

    THANK YOU FOR BEING AN ACI MEMBER AND FOR YOUR INVOLVEMENT IN THIS GREAT INDUSTRY.

    As we approach the close of 2015, there are exciting things to celebrate, with the first being the strongest building year that we've seen since 2008. A close second are the recent announcements about upcoming projects for 2016 to fill your pipeline of work. So as we get ready to close the books let start planning for

    what's next. What is next? We don’t have all the answers, but from ACI's perspective we plan to be ready to assist where possible. For the first time in a number of years, we have a road map to improve and add to the services we provide. Our ACI Strategic Plan isn't just another book on the shelf; it's a working tool that is being drilled down through the committees to all of our volunteers. With this direction and the volunteer leadership in place, we can't lose. There are new things coming in 2016 that I want to mention, with the first being a change in our
