Steinbicker is involved in many industry associations, including the American Society of Civil Engineers, Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute, American Institute of Steel Construction and the American Concrete Institute (ACI). He was a founding member of ACI Committee 551, Tilt-Up Construction and attended their first committee meeting on March 30, 1980 in Las Vegas in conjunction with the World of Concrete. He served as ACI 551 Committee Chair from 1992 to 1998 and was also a charter member of ACI Committee C650 - Tilt-Up Constructor Certification.

Steinbicker was a founding member of the TCA in 1986 and served on the TCA Board of Directors from 2003 through 2011. He was the 2013 recipient of the David L.
