MCAA Hosts Successful Events At World of Concrete

By Dan Kamys
The Mason Contractors Association of America hosted a series of meetings and events during the 2021 World of Concrete from June 7-10 in Las Vegas. As the first major trade show to reopen the city, it was a great opportunity for the industry to connect in person in a big way.
Odom Honored With C. DeWitt Brown Leadman Award
Each year, the Mason Contractors Association of America presents the C. DeWitt Brown Leadman Award to an individual who has provided exemplary leadership in advancing the masonry industry.
This year, former MCAA Chairman Paul Odom received the honor after a heartfelt introduction from his daughter, Liz Graves, during the MCAA’s Board Meeting on Monday, June 7th.
All of the individuals who have received this prestigious award have demonstrated a tireless dedication to our industry through years of volunteer support and hard work. They have helped to ensure that our industry remains vital for the many people employed through masonry.

Full of bright colors, sights, sounds, textures and fun, Señor Frog’s Las Vegas features humor and outrageousness with unique stools, decorative elements, signs and banners on the walls and ceilings, and crazy antics of the servers creating a cool place to hang out for hours and spend the best of times in an informal way.
