Masonry Education and Promotion
Provider: North Carolina Masonry Contractors Association
This presentation will focus on the results and implementation of the 2006-07 Masonry Institute of Michigan’s Business Plan. A dominant emphasis was placed on the “new” Masonry Alternate Design (MAD) program, which eventually led to the creation of the Masonry Coalition in 2009. As the MAD plan stated; “This program is the most likely to produce substantial additional masonry work in the shortest amount of time, assuming MIM can devote a very significant part of its resources to it.” Lessons learned will be shared with respect to tracking projects, the competition, and the tools available.
A discussion on masonry design will include base flashing details, moving the expansion and control joints away from the openings, masonry’s energy advantage and effective mortar specifications. The presentation will also explore why the CMU Check-Off program is so important for research, promotion and education for the masonry industry.
We’ll explore the question, “What does the future hold for masonry?”
