A new name for CCMA
Southeast Concrete Masonry Association
By Lynn Nash
Beginning April 1, 2015 the Carolinas Concrete Masonry Association (CCMA) will become the Southeast Concrete Masonry Association (SCMA).
CCMA/SCMA President Byrad Stevens says, “After almost seventy years of being the Carolinas trade association representing concrete masonry industry and concrete construction, we have seen a need to expand our efforts into the surrounding states of Tennessee and Virginia. Increasing the public awareness of load bearing masonry and masonry systems has been a driving force in the decision by the CCMA Board to expand our footprint and promotional efforts.”
CCMA membership is composed of concrete block plants and companies who supply aggregates, cement, mortar mix, equipment, admixtures, materials and services to block producers. CCMA has a close affiliation with the National Concrete Masonry Association (NCMA).
CCMA was formed in 1981 with the consolidation of the North Carolina Concrete Masonry Association, which began in 1946, and the South Carolina Concrete Masonry Association, chartered in 1954.
CCMA is based in Mooresville, N.C.
