TMS Virtual Offerings, Meetings, & More

As we work virtually, we wanted to let you know of some of TMS's online resources, including a free upcoming webinar on masonry resources and a Virtual Town Hall Meeting of the Society.
FREE Webinar: Masonry Info 101 – Where to Find Good Information on Masonry,
May 7 @ 1 pm ET
Getting information when you want it and need it is critically important to help your effectiveness and speed your work along. Sit down (virtually) with The Masonry Society’s (TMS) Executive Director on an informal webinar to discuss popular online and printed resources, their purposes, advantages and limitations. Learn some of Phil’s favorites, while also hearing hints, tips, and warnings. Phil will start by focusing on TMS’s resources, but then as time allows, will look at some exciting and powerful resources from other industry partners. For those new to TMS, not familiar with TMS’s website, and new to masonry, this webinar should help them more easily navigate TMS’s website, and those of other organizations. As time permits, questions will be taken from attendees. This session is targeted especially to those new to masonry and new to TMS.
