The Concrete Industry Management (CIM) Program is a four-year Bachelor of Science degree available at several universities around the country. It is often paired with a Business, Marketing, or Construction Management degree. Currently, there is not a CIM university program available in the Midwest. Is this something our industry would like to change by helping to develop a program like this closer to home? The first step includes developing and sustaining a list of “patrons” that have a broad range of talents affiliated with the concrete and masonry industries and are willing to help by offering time, talent, and treasure to support a CIM program.
