This marks the fourth year in a row that the event has broken the previous attendance record. The meeting is the masonry industry’s chance to enjoy a balance of networking, educational, and collaborative events.

The MAC PEC Golf Outing, which took place on Monday after Committee Meetings, set an all-time high in fundraising to support the MCAA’s advocacy for the industry.

Our attendance has set yet another record. This is incredibly promising, especially as we develop new offerings like the 2024 Masonry Alliance Program, a national Workforce Development plan, and 2025 Leadership Summit. We look forward to building relationships with all the new stakeholders who want to help us build tomorrow.”
