2017 MAF Annual Convention
October 19-22, 2017
You are personally invited to attend the 2017 MAF Annual Convention. It’s an exciting time for Masonry Association, as we celebrate our 30-year anniversary and continue to grow and change, remaining always adaptable, motivated and responsive to the masonry industry. Our organization is confronting a time of many changes and we’re meeting these changes with great anticipation of wonderful things to come.

Over the three days of the convention, you will find many opportunities to network with all facets of the masonry industry . The event begins on Thursday night with a Welcome Reception around the pool, giving everyone an opportunity to mingle and catch up. The Fastest Trowel and Apprentice competitions, ProMasonry and Annual Board of Directors meetings are being held on Friday and then Saturday, attend a CE course by Don Beers, PE, GC then spend rest of the day lounging by the pool, playing a round of golf, fishing or floating down the lazy river with a cocktail - just don't forget to complete your scavenger hunt items - 1st prize is $500! Saturday night we will come together to celebrate our 30 years, and honor our talented mason contractors and industry members at the Masonry Excellence & Industry Recognition Awards banquet.
Hope to see you there!
