American Concrete Institute

Kryton’s President and CEO Kari Yuers speaking at the American Concrete Institute (ACI) booth at World of Concrete 2014.

Industry organizations are a great way to keep on top of changing issues, trends and legislation; they also provide networking, education and training opportunities, as well as offer the opportunity to promote your business.

The Kryton team plays an active role in the industry. Many of our employees are members of local and national concrete organizations, working to foster the growth of concrete standards and research as well as the integral waterproofing market. Here are five important industry associations that you should consider joining.
