CMU Checkoff Sessions
Thursday, February 14, 1:30-5 pm
The industry witnessed President Trump sign into law the Concrete Masonry Products Research, Education and Promotion Act on October 5. The Act authorizes a commodity checkoff program that could generate the funding necessary for our industry to successfully implement develop, and manage programs needed to grow market share in today’s competitive construction environment.
Now that this grassroots lobbying effort has come to fruition after years of industry rallying, what does it mean for the industry and concrete block manufacturers? Join us for an afternoon of sessions that will address the goals of the CMU Checkoff Program, how it would operate, and how your company can get involved to support success in an industry referendum. A well-funded, properly planned, and carefully monitored program can create product awareness, business opportunities, and product sales for all producers.
Speaker William Watson will lead a Commodity Checkoff Round Table. The General Session will be followed by Regional Breakout Sessions for Regions I through V. There will be an industry reception immediately following the CMU Checkoff sessions from 5:30-6:30 pm to celebrate the passage of the CMU Checkoff Bill with members and industry partners. Clear here to get all the latest information.
“There is more work and collaboration ahead of us, but I don’t see us backing down from that challenge either. I hope that manufacturers, suppliers, contractors and industry partners will join us for this event as we march down the field to our next goal line,” Major Ogilvie, chair of the CMU Checkoff Program.
