Newly added events at 2014 MCAA Convention
Free events for members of the MCAA
The following events were not on the original schedule for the MCAA Convention, but have been added. There is no need for registration, just show up to the event.
MCAA Contractor Round Table Discussion
Tuesday, January 21, 2014, 8:00 am -11:00 am Convention Center North Hall Room 209 and 210
Join mason contractors from around the country to discuss issues affecting them every day and learn from them how they handle them. This is not a class, but rather an interactive open discussion of contractors. It will be moderated by two contractors from different parts of the country who will have several topics for discussion to get the talk started. Come prepared to share and be open about your company. This has been a very popular program at the MCAA mid-year meeting and we expect there to be some great lively discussion. Learn from others who have already done it.
NCCER Update Meeting
Thursday, January 23, 2014, 7:00 am -8:30 am Convention Center North Hall Room 209This meeting is an extension of last year’s meeting on apprenticeship programs and how to develop your own local programs. The MCAA has recently hired Terry Ruppell of TN to begin implementing sponsoring local high schools technical training in both KY and TN. Hear from programs that have been around for years and also hear from programs that are a year old and younger. If you are interested in training our future, you should be present.
Thursday, January 23, 2014, 8:30 am -9:30 am Convention Center North Hall Room 209The Masonry Executives will be meeting at this year’s convention. If you lead a masonry group, come and share what is happening in your area and what you all have done and are looking to do. The true purpose of this group is to make sure we do not reinvent the wheel if someone has already done it. Join us for the meeting and make sure that you leave your contact information so you can be included on calls the group has throughout the year.
