The International Concrete Repair Institute (ICRI) is the center for concrete repair leadership, providing education, certification, networks, and leadership to improve the repair, restoration, and protection of concrete and other structures. Our “why” is summed up in three words: Restore. Repurpose. Renew.
Among our many activities, ICRI has highly engaged administrative and technical committees; produces webinars and certification programs; publishes a bimonthly magazine and a variety of technical guidelines for concrete repair; and offers many networking opportunities through conventions, events, and local chapters. Worldwide membership includes contractors, manufacturers, engineers, distributors, owners, and other professionals with a common goal of prolonging the useful life of concrete through quality repair, restoration, and protection.
Opportunity: This is an exciting opportunity to take a leadership role in driving ICRI’s future growth through effective membership and product/service marketing strategies. ICRI has a 5-year goal to grow membership and revenue by 50 percent. This role is critical to that growth and achieving the goal. Working closely with the Executive Director, Technical Director, and Program Director, you will be part of a highly collaborative and supportive team.
The ideal candidate will have association marketing experience and/or marketing/business development in the concrete repair or construction industry. We welcome applicants from anywhere, but we prefer that this individual either be based in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area or willing to spend time in the area – especially in the first year. This full-time position will report to the ICRI Executive Director.
