The Metal Construction Association is an organization of manufacturers and suppliers whose metal products are used in structures throughout the world.
Since it was formed in 1983, MCA has focused on one key strategy - to promote the use of metal in the building envelope through marketing, education, and action on public policies that affect metal’s use.
MCA’s marketing and technical activities create awareness of metal, its applications, and its benefits. MCA also works to eliminate barriers to metal’s use in construction by supporting product performance testing, initiating research, and monitoring and responding to codes and regulations that affect metal.
These well-established activities help educate building owners, designers, installers, educators and those who determine relevant codes and standards. The result – more metal products are chosen for a broader scope of projects.
MCA is a volunteer-led organization with much of the work achieved through strong leadership by its board of directors and member-driven MCA councils and committees. Full membership meetings are held twice each year in January and mid-year, usually in June or July.
Work of the association continues throughout the year via a third-party management team and ongoing communication between board, council and committee groups. This is achieved via phone conferences, Webinars, as well as committee and council meetings as needed.
MCA’s Summer Meeting will provide you an opportunity to gain insight on industry trends, and forecasts that will help you make educated decisions to position you and your company for the future.
Attendees can participate in product-specific council and committee meetings to learn about new and future initiatives to help advance the use of metal in construction. We’re happy to have representation from NRCA and AISI collaborate on several sessions.
The can’t-miss general session will address how shortages, inflation, and other effects of global events are taking their toll on businesses and the economy. With causes ranging from the pandemic to the war in Ukraine, businesses have had to cope with shortages and increased costs related to labor, raw materials, transportation, and more.
