MCAA Gateway: April 2019

2019 Masonry Industry Legislative Conference  

The Masonry Industry Legislative Conference will be held May 14-16, 2019 in Washington, D.C. 

The conference is the perfect opportunity to meet with elected officials and discuss important issues affecting your company and the masonry industry. The main focus of the program will be getting our issues and positions in front of key congressional figures and tell them our story as to how their votes impact our industry. 

We are also very excited to offer a nighttime monument tour of Washington D.C.  This three-hour tour includes stops at the U.S. Capitol, the White House, Lincoln Memorial, Jefferson Memorial, FDR Memorial, Iwo Jima Memorial, MLK Memorial, World War II Memorial, Washington Monument, and much more!

MCAA Safety Advantage Awards  

Submissions are now open for the 2019 MCAA Safety Advantage Awards, sponsored by Federated Insurance. 

Safety is overlooked by some contractors for several reasons: cost, time, resources, compounded focus on production, or simple ignorance. The goal of the MCAA Safety Advantage Awards is to help draw attention to the need and benefits of performing safely.  

The MCAA Safety Advantage Awards will be presented based on a mason contractor’s incident rate. The incident rate is calculated by multiplying the number of injuries and illnesses from the OSHA Form 300 by 200,000, divided by the total number of hours worked by all employees for the year. 

All entries will be tabulated and awards will be presented at the MCAA Midyear Meeting to the top two companies with less than 100,000 hours worked by all employees, and the top two companies with more than 100,000 hours worked by all employees. Entry is free for MCAA members. 

Visit to enter your company. 

Submissions must be received by June 30, 2019.
