Some people just have a knack for getting things done. They're folks we turn to when there's a tough problem to solve, an important initiative to enact, or a cause to be funded. They always work hard to make the concrete industry better recognized, more profitable, safer, and more sustainable. And more often than not, they look at their efforts as way to unify what has become a very segmented industry.

Simply put, their actions improve our industry.

We believe these top influencers should be recognized for their efforts. For this reason, The Concrete Producer magazine honors them each year.

Please help us honor the people you feel are worthy of this prestigious title by nominating them for our editorial review board.

Qualifications

Nominees can be involved in our industry in any capacity such as a concrete producer, contractor, educator, consultant, or association representative.

There are several possible ways to describe these industry influencers:

  • They are committed to advancing and improving the industry, and are agents for noticeable change, for a short or long time.
  • They work tirelessly to promote concrete, and serve as an advocate for the industry.
  • They consistently seek new, more efficient and innovative methods to complete the job.
  • They strive to improve communication between all stakeholders in the concrete industry, including producers, engineers and architects, suppliers, and regulatory agencies.
  • They go beyond their normal duties to help the industry grow by mentoring others, developing training or recruitment programs, or helping publish information sources for producers, contractors, and/or designers.

Nominations

To nominate someone, please fill out the form and send it to us. Attach a separate sheet briefly explaining how this person has contributed to the concrete industry and why he or she deserves to be recognized.

We may contact you before judging for additional information on why you believe we should honor this person. The winner will be chosen by the editorial staff of The Concrete Producer magazine.

We will announce the Influencers in the December 2008 issue, and will recognize them at a special event at World of Concrete 2009.
