Submissions must state the significant accomplishments of the individual nominee. Nominations will be reviewed by the Hall of Fame judging panel including:
  • Executive Officers (4)
  • 1 Regional Vice President (rotated annually)
  • 1 Committee Chair (rotated annually)
  • 1 at large member (rotated annually)
  • President/CEO
Any nominee must receive 6 of the 8 eligible votes in order to be accepted into the Hall of Fame. Nominations will be accepted until Saturday, November 1, 2015, at 11:59 PM CDT. Nominees accepted into the Hall of Fame will be inducted during the MCAA Convention. Visit www.masoncontractors.org/hall-of-fame to submit your nomination.
