An Offer You Can’t Refuse

Chairman’s Message


By

As you may have noticed (from the wrap around the cover) this month, I have worked with the staff over at the MCAA office to offer every reader who is not a member of the MCAA the opportunity to join the MCAA at 50% off your first year’s dues.

I know you are going to get so much out of MCAA, I am willing to pay half of your first year’s dues so you can see what you have been missing. I can only make this offer to new members of the MCAA. I encourage you to become a member today and see why I love it so much and why I’m proud to say I’m a member of the MCAA.

Call the MCAA office at 800-536-2225 and mention, “PAUL SENT ME” or visit the MCAA website at www.masoncontractors.org/paul and use the code PAUL at checkout to take advantage of this special offer.

Membership has a lot of great benefits, but one of my favorites is the opportunity to spend time talking and learning about our businesses and operations. Over the years, I’ve learned so much from the networking that I’ve done with other mason contractors across the country. I’ve developed relationships with fellow contractors that have become my friends. I can call them to ask how they would or wouldn’t do something and they know they can do the same with me. This is something you may not always be comfortable doing with the mason contractor on the other side of town from you.

We will have another opportunity for this kind of networking coming up very soon at our Midyear Meeting in Austin, Texas. I invite you to join us as we meet in my home state of Texas in September. A few of the highlights include:

  • A round of golf at Teravista Golf Club
  • BBQ (because what trip to Texas doesn’t include BBQ?)
  • A show at Esther’s Follies (an Austin “must see” show full of political satire, comedy, Vegas-style magic and hilarious musical numbers that will have you rolling and blushing during the same song)
  • Speed Dating and Networking Roundtable Discussions

Speed Dating... some of you may be wondering what that’s about and why would dating be part of the mason contractor’s Midyear Meeting. This event started a few years ago and has been a hit (and not just because of the show-down of which vendor makes the best Bloody Mary’s). It is an opportunity for vendors to sit down with members to show them anything new they have, discuss challenges, and ask questions. As a contractor, I get a lot out of this because I find out new things that I may have missed at the World of Concrete amongst everything else that is going on in Vegas. I also, love being paired with other contractors through the process so that I can hear their take on the equipment, products, or services discussed.

I’m so excited for you all to come down to Texas. It’s going to be a great time, and, as I said above, it truly is one of my favorite parts of being a MCAA member. When I attended my first few meetings almost 20 years ago, my wife and I were welcomed into the group. Come join us and let me personally introduce you to a great group of new friends that speak your language. You just may learn a few new things and I assure you that we will have a good ol’ time... Texas style.

Until next month...
