    November 6 & 7
    Something for Everyone!

    The 2008 MDC begins at 1:00 P.M. on Thursday, November 6 with our final Block Producer Safety Workshop of the year. The Associate Member Meeting follows the workshop at 5:00 P.M. Then at 6:00 P.M., relax with your friends and colleagues while enjoying your favorite beverage prior to our very special Industry Reunion, Presented by Norbert Rappl.

    Besides learning better ways to run our businesses one of the great values of the New York State Concrete Masonry Association is the friends we make. We've had some great times over the years and memorable experiences.

    Just because you may have retired doesn't mean you can't come back to visit with old friends. Associates and Producers- this is a call for those of you who may not have come back for awhile- to come to the Turning Stone and catch up on what your old friends have been up to.

    Norb Rappl will be making a special presentation on the history of the New York State Concrete Masonry Association. The Dagostino Family was kind enough to share some of Larry Sr's library of photographs and will show some of the associations proudest and most hilarious moments. Bruce Yenny whose father was one of the original partners when Dur-O-Wal was founded- recently gave us some of the original newsletters of the NYSCMA. . . .we'll be displaying these at the banquet.

    This will be a great evening you'll not want to miss! Rick Roach, NYSCMA Chairman

    After the banquet try your luck in the casino, but don't forget to refresh yourself in between turns at the gaming tables with a beverage in the NYSCMA hospitality suite!

    We begin again Friday morning with a complimentary breakfast, followed by the NYSCMA Member Meeting. We then tackle the subject of "Integral Water Repellent Block and A Block Producer's Responsibilities & Liability", with presentations from three of the most knowledgeable professionals in their respective fields. We'll continue after the lunch break with a presentation on a unique program specifically for CMU producers from Diedrich Chemicals. For our final topic of the conference, we'll shift gears and present a subject that is sure to resonate with every family business owner - "Keeping it in the Family".

    Whether you are an owner, or are in sales, production or administration, the 2008 Member Development Conference has something for everyone.

    See you November 6 & 7 at Turning Stone Resort!
