NAMC & Spring Meeting Registration Open

Registration Now Open for 13NAMC!
Register Early to Get Discounted Registration & Accommodations
The 13th North American Masonry is hosted by Brigham Young University and is the latest in a series of quadrennial conferences sponsored by The Masonry Society. The conference will provide a forum to professionals from around the world for networking and sharing the latest advances in masonry knowledge and practice. The conference will feature tracks of interest to masonry researchers, designers, practitioners, educators, and building managers. Certificates of Attendance for conference sessions will be available for attendees.
The Masonry Society has opened registration for its Spring Meetings and the 13th North American Masonry Conference, both of which will be held in June in Salt Lake City. TMS will conduct its business meetings, including the meetings of TMS 402/602 on June 14-16, and the 13 NAMC will be held immediately after (June 16-19). With more than 150 papers from 20 countries submitted for the conference, this could be the largest and most heavily attended NAMC to date. Register early to receive the early registration discount. Also make your hotel reservations through their online portal to ensure your accommodations at the host hotel.
Before registering, make sure you have renewed your TMS's Membership (click here to renew). If you are not a TMS Member, join here as the cost of membership is typically less than the difference between a nonmember and member registration.
Hotel Accommodations for Spring Meetings & NAMC
The 13th North American Masonry Conference will be held at the Salt Lake City Marriott City Center hotel, located in the heart of Salt Lake City. The hotel is within walking distance of many of downtown Salt Lake CIty's attractions.
