RMMI News & Events
The Rocky Mountain Masonry Institute (RMMI) recently launched a "members only" section on its website, which includes an extensive database of technical information. This section addresses all technical questions that Technical Director Diane Travis has answered for members during the past 10 years. It also includes a directory of Brick Industry Association and National Concrete Masonry Association technical notes, technical reports and e-mails. The section also provides links to articles relevant to the industry, photographs of memorable events, and registration information for upcoming activities, seminars and classes.
The annual RMMI golf tournament has been scheduled for May 23 at Plum Creek Golf Course, near Colorado Springs, Colo. The shotgun-start event is a popular fundraiser for the nonprofit organization. Contact Member Services Director Linda Riney at email@example.com or (303) 893-3838 if you would like to participate.
RMMI's Technical Director Diane Travis will be taking her show on the road in May and August, presenting catered Box Lunch Seminars for architects, engineers, masons and homeowners - ultimately, anyone who works with or has a masonry building - on the new International Building Code and its impact on building and design. Although the Uniform Building Code (UBC) was officially replaced by the International Building Code (IBC) in 2000, most municipalities did not get around to adopting the new code until recently. Most code authorities are now using the 2003 IBC.
Diane's Colorado mountain town tour will be: May 23 in either Durango or Telluride - depending on which town wins a competition to schedule attendees in advance; May 24 in Grand Junction; May 25 in Aspen; and May 26 in Vail. Contact Diane by May 17 for a specific listing of locations, times and to register by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Advance registration is required to attend these seminars, in order to ensure sufficient class materials and food is available.
