Held in June at Brigham Young University in Salt Lake City UT, the 13th North American Masonry Conference (NAMC) drew more than 220 individuals from more than 20 countries.

Chaired by Dr. Fernando Fonseca, the conference provided excellent technical content resulting from more than 150 presentations, effective networking opportunities, and a friendly and inviting atmosphere. In addition, exhibitors and Innovative Technology Sessions allowed industry partners to interact with attendees and share their products. Dr. Patrick B. Dillon of WDP and Associates led the technical program, coordinating reviews and presentations of technical content. Jason J. Thompson of the National Concrete Masonry Association (NCMA) served as the Industry Liaison Chair and helped procure sponsorships in excess of the conference’s goal, helping to ensure its financial success.
