We’re in Scottsdale! The 2016 MCAA Midyear Meeting is about to kick off and we can’t wait to see you!
The 2016 MCAA Midyear Meeting will begin with the Opening Reception on the Northern Sky Terrace at The Westin Kierland Resort & Spa on Sunday, October 2, 2016 at 5:30 PM.
Throughout the week, attendees will be able to participate in important committee meetings and networking events, while experiencing everything Scottsdale has to offer, from the MAC PAC Golf Tournament to the Desert Monsters ATV Tour.
MCAA’s Speed Dating will be held on Monday 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.
Following the MCAA Boarding Meeting on Tuesday, the MCAA will host its popular Networking Round Table Discussions. Networking Round Table Discussions will engage different positions within a masonry company The group will address and discuss issues of relevance to the duties they perform. The session will have an appointed leader from within the segment. That person will initiate conversation and coordinate the time for the group. Attendees should be prepared to participate in conversation about the issues at hand and should be willing to share best practices.
The 2016 MCAA Midyear Meeting will conclude Tuesday evening with a reception and dinner at The Westin Kierland Golf Club on the outside green overlooking the beautiful scenery of Scottsdale. Prizes for the MAC PEC Golf Tournament will also be awarded at the dinner.
