NCMA's Masonry Checkoff Update

The progress of the Concrete Masonry Products Research, Education and Promotion Order is gaining speed and just passed into the next step of its approval process. On August 24, the Department of Commerce posted the draft order in the Federal Register where it will be open to public comment for 45 days. Anyone who would like to make comments on this draft will have until Oct 8 to do so.  If you would like to read this draft order you can click here, where you will find a copy of the 19-page document outlining the rules of this program. Due to any unforeseen issues the NCMA feels this program will be put out to their membership for voting around the first of the year.
