Mason Contractors Association of California, Inc.

Who is MCAC?

Established as the first and only statewide mason contractors association, the Mason Contractors Association of California, Inc. (MCAC) was formally incorporated as a non-profit 501 (c)(6) corporation on April 1, 1963 as the California Conference of Mason Contractor Associations, Inc. (CCMCA). Originally formed to give California mason contractors a greater voice in labor negotiations, MCAC expanded to become an organization representing both open-shop and signatory mason contractors of all sizes and specialties on a variety of issues related to the trade. In 2011, the association restructured and took on its new identity as the MCAC to more accurately reflect its member makeup from a regional presence to more individualized participation. Today, MCAC is comprised of mason contractors as well as suppliers with ties to the masonry industry. The Association is headquartered in the state capital of Sacramento, CA.

What Does MCAC Do?

MCAC is designed to enhance opportunities and services to mason contractors through the exchange of ideas and resources. This exchange is founded upon the principals of information sharing and peer-to-peer networking not only between contractors and suppliers but also among related trade groups with shared interests.

What Relationships Does MCAC Have with Other Industry Trade Organizations and State Government?

MCAC is the conduit that all mason contractors can use to voice their needs to other industry organizations and state government leaders. MCAC represents its members in related organizations to increase member visibility and recognition of the masonry industry. These affiliations create a greater presence for the masonry industry overall and a louder voice before our state decision-makers.
