We’re in Las Vegas!
The 2012 MCAA Convention is ready to kick off
By Tim O’Toole
We’re in Las Vegas! The sun is shining and the weather is perfect. The 2012 MCAA Convention at the World of Concrete/World of Masonry is about to kick off and we can’t wait to see you!
The fun will begin tonight at Maggiano’s Little Italy when the MCAA Convention officially begins with the Opening Dinner. A special guest speaker will join us to give a brief summary of what we can expect on the political landscape in 2012.
Throughout the week, attendees will be able to walk thousands of square feet of exhibits and attend dozens of education courses offered that will allow you to earn Masonry Certification credit. Plus thousands of dollars in cash and prizes will be given away to the best masons in the industry competing in the Masonry Skills Challenge, the SPEC MIX BRICKLAYER 500®, and the Fastest Trowel on the Block.
And you won’t want to miss out on our annual South of 40 fundraising event at Pete’s Dueling Piano Bar. One thing we can promise you is that a visit to Pete's will result in a night of extreme singing, clapping, and laughing. A-list piano players take the stage with baby grand pianos to perform all your favorite hits from every era imaginable including Elvis, Eminem, Neil Diamond, AC/DC, Billy Joel, Dave Matthews, Bon Jovi, Blink-182, Beastie Boys, The Beatles, and much, much more! Proceeds from this event will go to the MCAA Foundation, a 501(c)(3), and will be distributed to programs that help support masonry education and training.
Don’t forget that you can follow all the action live on Twitter by following @mcaa throughout the week.
