We’re in Milwaukee! The 2014 MCAA Midyear Meeting is about to kick off and we can’t wait to see you!
The 2014 Midyear Meeting will begin with the 2014 TEAM Awards. This year's event will be hosted at the world famous Harley-Davidson Museum®. History roars to life at the Harley-Davidson Museum®. It's the best of American design and culture - seasoned with freedom and rebellion, showcased in a landmark building. See why the museum is one of Milwaukee's top tourist destinations.
After visiting the museum, spend the night with your fellow celebrities of the masonry world as we celebrate the best of the best in the industry and announce the winners of the annual Tribute to Exemplary Achievements in Masonry (TEAM) Awards competition. Mason contractors realize that quality masonry projects are the result of strong creative vision and skilled execution. The purpose of the TEAM Awards is to give recognition to these projects and members of the construction team for outstanding accomplishments in masonry design and construction.
Throughout the week, attendees will will be able to participate in important committee meetings and networking events, while experiencing everything Milwaukee has to offer.
And you won’t want to miss the closing dinner on Friday night at the infamous Milwaukee microbrewery, The Horny Goat. The evening will begin with a stop at Barnacle Buds for a brief 30 minute reception at one of the secluded treasures of Milwaukee. After the reception, we will continue to The Horny Goat, where a pig roast and buffet-style dinner will be waiting. Attendees will be able to enjoy live music and a number of games available for all to participate in, including Giant Jenga, and bags.
The 2014 MCAA Midyear Meeting will conclude with Speed Dating on Saturday morning. Speed Dating is a rapid series of short and concise business-to-business meetings between mason contractors and manufacturer/suppliers to openly discuss business needs as well as the latest product and equipment innovations advancing the masonry industry. As a contractor, you'll meet with nine companies set up in an intimate setting, where they'll present to you their latest products and services. Once that meeting is over, you'll move on to the next appointment to learn how that company will improve your organization's business and increase profitability.
Don’t forget that you can follow all the action live on Twitter by following @mcaa throughout the week.
