Governor Inslee's Guidance on Construction Proclamation
Issued March 25, 2020


PDF Version of Proclamation


Important Update regarding ACI Certification and Events: 

After a lot of discussion and input from our Examiners and following the recommendations of the Board of Directors for both WACA and WA ACI, we will be suspending our ACI certification schedule in March through April 3; this includes other Association events and Chapter meetings.  After April 1st, we will look at what may have changed or developed regarding state implemented strategies, business practices and any recommendations at the Federal, State and local levels.

As things get better, April will be a crazy month and we will do our best to accommodate the needs but recognize certification on demand is not something we can do.  We will work with our examiners and testing locations to meet the need as scheduling permits. We will get the rescheduled sessions conducted first and schedule additional sessions accordingly.  Thank you for your understanding, cooperation and patience.
