The Florida Concrete Masonry Education Council will hold a signing ceremony March 4, to signify their commitment to a program that will help fund masonry education and promotion in Florida. The event, which is open to the public, will be held at 11a.m. in the Masonry Lab on the Mid Florida Tech campus in Orlando – 2900 W. Oak Ridge Rd., Orlando, Fla. 32809.

The council was appointed by Governor Rick Scott and its purpose is to bring together masonry manufacturers and contractors in an effort to plan and conduct training programs, improve access to masonry education, develop outreach programs to ensure diversity and inform the public about the sustainability and economic benefits of concrete masonry products.

“This marks a momentous day for our industry and we look forward to implementing these important educational programs for masons across the state,” said FCMEC Chairman Troy Maschmeyer. “We've been collectively working on this program for a very long time and we are enthusiastic about the many benefits it will bring to the industry."
