The Metal Construction Association (MCA) will hold its 2014 Summer Meeting (previously called the Semi-Annual Meeting) June 23-25, 2014, at the Westin O’Hare in Rosemont, Ill., near Chicago. Look for additional information about the Summer Meeting soon on MCA’s new website.
MCA is a volunteer-led organization with much of the work achieved through strong leadership by its board of directors and member-driven councils and committees. Meetings are typically held in January and mid-year. These events include interactive council and committee sessions with discussion of current work in development, where important actions and activities are addressed.
In addition to meetings, MCA’s major annual event is the METALCON International Exhibition and Conference, which provides product exhibits, educational programs, and demonstrations of the latest field techniques and trends for designers, builders, developers, contractors, fabricators, and suppliers from around the world. METALCON is the only show devoted entirely to the use of metal in construction. The 2014 event is scheduled for Oct. 1-3 at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver.
The Metal Construction Association brings together a diverse industry for the purpose of expanding the use of metal in construction through marketing, research and technology and education. Companies involved in MCA gain tremendous benefit from association activities that focus on research, codes and standards, market development, and technical programs. MCA’s market development efforts increase the use of metal materials in construction through the education of the building and design communities about the benefits of metal.
