We’re in Las Vegas!
The 2011 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 2011 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 at the Wynn Resort Las Vegas tonight as we recognize the best masonry projects and announce the winners of the 2011 MCAA TEAM Awards.
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 first annual South of 40 fundraising event at the Hofbräuhaus. You'll experience live music direct from Germany, authentic imported beers, and classic German delicacies - all in a traditional Bavarian atmosphere! 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.
Visit convention.masoncontractors.org today for more information and register to attend!
We’ll see you soon in Las Vegas!
