September 14, 2018 – CAC-RCI Summer Program and Meeting Summary and Upcoming Fall Event


The Chicago Area Chapter of RCI, Inc. (CAC-RCI) conducted its Summer Program on Friday, September 14, 2018 at Arrowhead Golf Club in Wheaton, Illinois.  The event was attended by approximately 50 CAC-RCI members, speakers, guests, and exhibitors.  Table top exhibitors included Tecta America, A&D Building Products, and Architectural Building Solutions. 

The first program presentation was “Adhered Masonry Veneer Walls – Design through Construction” by Renae Kwon and Rich Koziol of Wiss Janney Elstner and Associates.  The second presentation was “Quality Assurance Observation of Below Grade Waterproofing” by Ray Makiejus of Flood Testing Laboratories.  Both presentations were well received and provided an opportunity for participants to ask questions along the way.  Immediately following the educational program, CAC-RCI held their 2nd Annual Golf Outing at the on-site golf course.

With autumn on the horizon, CAC-RCI is currently gearing up for the 4th and final education program of 2018.  Please join us on Friday, November 2, 2018 for another day of great speakers, networking, and catching up with friends and colleagues.
