Full membership with the MMCA gives benefits of CMCA, CMDC and the MMI. CMDC is an organization that helps contractors "connect" with engineers through their advice and through education of both contractors and engineers on proper masonry construction practices and designs.
It furthermore assists masonry contractors by providing services of a professional engineer in cases of disputes where contractors feel they are unfairly branded in their performance on a project (ie: Unreasonable requirements of design, etc.)
Last but not least, contractors can look for assistance from the CMDC in their efforts to convert projects to masonry from other proposed construction methods.
Full Membership (Includes CMCA and MMI membership):
$500 / Year + hourly remittance as per collective bargaining agreement.
Non-union members work under gentleman's agreement.
