The Annual Concrete Conference offers networking and knowledge-sharing opportunities for practicing engineers, engineering faculty, consultants, contractors, concrete contractors, and state and county agency employees.

Conference History

In 1950, concrete industry professionals met with University of Minnesota engineering faculty and continuing education staff to design a professional development program for engineers, contractors, architects, consultants, educators, and engineering students. The result, an inaugural conference in December 1951, became an annual University offering.
