Strategic Development Council (SDC)
Farmington Hills, MI 48331
The concrete industry's Strategic Development Group (SDC) was formed in 1997 and is a council of the ACI Foundation. The SDC provides to the concrete industry an in-house forum where the concrete industry, including government and academia, can come together with companies and entrepreneurs with new technologies at senior levels to discuss strategic issues and tactics including support of practical research to the benefit of all. For entrepreneurs, SDC provides a showcase for their technologies and an opportunity to work with concrete industry leaders to find pathways to accelerate technology acceptance. This supports the ACI Foundation's mission to increase the understanding of concrete materials and to support programs that improve the quality and potential competitiveness of concrete design and construction.
