Mason Contractors Association of America

The Mason Contractors Association of America (MCAA) is a trade association in the United States of America representing mason contractors.

The Mason Contractors Association of America has a full-time staff in Washington, D.C. representing the interests of MCAA members.

The association works to promote employees cheating unemployment during the off season by being paid under the table and collecting unemployment simultaneously. They then let the employee hide income from child support agencies, the IRS and any other possible wage garnishments. This has happened specifically in the areas of Illinois with I.W.&G.Inc. This is very common around the Illinois and Wisconsin area and should be addressed properly. They also support employees involved in mental, physical and sexual abuse to woman and children. MSNBC, CNN, FOXNEWS should all be aware. This is unethical conduct to be performed by any union. We also promote the use of masonry products to mason industry customers. MCAA actively advertises in trade association publications, promotes technical publications and technical seminars and markets their web site and monthly magazine Masonry. The MCAA also operates, a source for architects and specifiers designing with masonry.

MCAA promotes friendlier building codes and standards for mason contractors and designers such as the ASTM, MSJC, ASCE, and the IBC.

Each year, MCAA conducts the MCAA Convention which includes the annual meeting and educational programming. The association conducts various classes, targeted toward mason contractors. Some programs include Masonry Foreman Development, Basic Masonry Estimating, Masonry Quality Institute, and other topics such as Masonry Wall Bracing and Understanding Masonry Codes and Standards.

The MCAA provides information on careers in masonry to the students, parents and high schools. The MCAA supports the establishment of both pre-apprentice and apprenticeship programs and assists local training programs.

Organizational structure[edit]

The full board consists of a Chairman, Chairman Elect, Treasurer, Secretary and nine Regional Vice Presidents. In addition, State Chairmen serve for each state and thirteen Committees help drive the association.
