Happy New Year to all our ICRI Baltimore-Washington Chapter members! I hope that your holidays were safe and that you were able to relax and recharge for what forecasts to be a busy 2023. I’m certainly energized and very much looking forward to all that 2023 has to offer our chapter!

I want to first and foremost thank our immediate Past President, Justin Long, P.E., for his leadership during his term and for encouraging the committee chairs to be creative and shake things up. I’d also like to thank our 2022 board members for all of their efforts over the last year, as well as recognize and thank our outgoing Director members Brian Radigan, Nick Henn, P.E., and Dominic Huey for their dedication and countless contributions to our Chapter!

Please join me in welcoming your new Board of Director members Thomas Brennan (U.S. Concrete Products), Amir Manafpour, PE, SE (Walter P Moore), and Kevin Quan (Cortec Corporation). Please be sure to give them a warm welcome at our next meeting in February and let them know your thoughts and expectations for the Chapter.

The Board of Directors met in January to map out the year and update the 2023 calendar of events. Please continue to monitor the website ( on a regular basis for new postings and information. We will continue to actively update our calendar and website to keep our members informed of upcoming events and calls for action.

I am very much looking forward to all that 2023 has to offer us as an organization! Please feel free to contact me personally at with any feedback, comments, or questions you have for this upcoming year.
