MCAA Gateway: August 2017

Accepting Masonry Hall of Fame Nominations

Nominations due by October 1, 2017

The Mason Contractors Association of America (MCAA) is accepting nominations for the 2018 Masonry Hall of Fame class.

The Masonry Hall of Fame was created to recognize and award individuals who have dedicated their lives to the masonry industry.

Do you know someone who has dedicated their life to the masonry industry? If so, nominate them to be part of the Masonry Hall of Fame.

Nominees must have had a major impact on the masonry industry, not necessarily with just the MCAA, and must have been or be in the industry for a minimum of 25 years. Nominees can be, but are not limited to contractors, employees, instructors, architects, engineers, and association staff.

Nominations are open to anyone in the masonry industry. Submissions must state the significant accomplishments of the individual nominee.

Nominations will be accepted until Sunday, October 1, 2017 at 11:59 PM CDT. Nominees accepted into the Hall of Fame will be inducted during the MCAA Convention.
