Widely considered one of the most prolific and popular presenters at Concrete Conferences over the years, Chris Munn’s outstanding contributions were this year recognised with him being elected an Honorary Member of the Society.

Peggy and Chris Munn

Chris is a long-serving member of the Society and has not only operated as President but was also a member of the management committee for seven years.

During his time significant improvements to the management processes of budgeting and planning process were established – that legacy continues to this day.

NZ Standard committees on which Chris has served include NZS3104 (presently active), NZS3109, NZS4218, and NZS4541. He has also served as the Executive Officer of the NZ Concrete Masonry Association and on the Technical Committee of the NZ Ready Mixed Concrete Association.

In his citation, Dene Cook drew special attention to Chris’ unique ability to communicate effectively with all sectors – and at all levels – of the concrete industry. “This skill has been a tremendous asset for us. The number of presentations and papers is testament to a commitment to share his passion for all things concrete.”

When not advancing the science of concrete, Chris fills his time restoring old things, particularly motorcycles and old engines. An avid hiker, he has walked virtually every track in the country, mostly in blizzard conditions.

A heartfelt thanks, Chris. Your honorary membership is richly deserved!
