RMMI News and Events
The Rocky Mountain Masonry Institute (RMMI) is wrapping up its spring season of workforce development. In the past four months, RMMI staff members have presented bricklaying demonstrations at more than 20 elementary, middle and high schools in the Denver and Colorado Springs areas. Several thousand students have taken part in hands-on opportunities to learn about bricklaying, as well as presentations on education, work ethics and entrepreneurship.
RMMI Technical Director Diane Travis has started her annual Colorado Mountain Tour, providing seminar luncheons for architects, engineers and masons on Colorado's Western Slope. This year's topic is "Sustainable Design and Masonry," and Travis will discuss meeting LEED green building certification requirements using masonry. During May, she presented the seminar in Durango, Grand Junction, Aspen, Steamboat and Vail, Colo. Later this summer, she will take her seminar tour to Wyoming and Montana architects.
Spring also brought about the annual RMMI Golf Classic. Held on May 31 at Vista Ridge Golf Course, approximately 144 golfers competed for bragging rights, while also helping to raise funds for RMMI's apprentice training program.
Future events include: the Clay Shoot at Kiowa Creek on July 13; the annual Summer Retreat at the Lodge at Vail, Aug. 9-11; and the "Run Around the Block" 5K race on Sept. 16. Sponsorship opportunities, ranging from $250 to $2,000, are available for all of the events.
