MCAA Gateway: August 2019

MCAA Midyear Meeting One Month Away 

The MCAA’s Midyear Meeting will be held September 811, 2019, at the Omni Mount Washington Resort in New Hampshire.  Register now so you don’t miss out on this unique event! 

If you have never attended the MCAA’s Midyear Meeting before, now is the perfect time.  The MCAA Midyear Meeting is a relaxed and intimate atmosphere where networking takes place.  Strike up a conversation with another mason contractor or a supplier who is not in your market, and you can share ideas and solutions to common problems faced on the jobsite.  This is where long-lasting friendships are born every year. 

Visit www.masoncontractors.org/midyear to learn more and to register online.

We look forward to seeing you in New Hampshire!
