2009 MCAA Midyear Meeting Wrap-up
San Diego played host to an excellent meeting
The 2009 MCAA Midyear Meeting was a great success this past September, held in San Diego, CA at the Manchester Grand Hyatt, the program presented excellent educational programs.
In addition to the excellent education programs, attendees had a great time with numerous networking functions and participated in an MCAA Board meeting and three committee meetings. The event was capped off with a wonderful evening of baseball at PETCO Park to watch the San Diego Padres take on the Arizona Diamondbacks in the historical Western Metal Building. That evening began with an excellent show of the Navy Seals skydiving team (see photos) and saw the Padres losing the game 4-2 in the ninth inning.
Members of the MCAA will be able to go to the MCAA website, www.masoncontractors.org, to view two of the four education sessions presented in San Diego, free of charge. One program is on Family Succession Planning and the other is on Immigration and E-Verify.
