SOLA Returns As MCAA’s Masonry Hall of Fame Sponsor For Third Consecutive Year Ceremony and Closing Dinner

To Occur September 20th During Midyear Meeting


The MCAA is proud to announce that Strategic Partner, SOLA, will again serve as the sole sponsor of the Masonry Hall of Fame for the third year. In 2021, SOLA served as the sole sponsor of the event at the Midyear Meeting in Memphis, Tennessee. In 2022, SOLA sponsored the Hall of Fame again in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. The 2023 Midyear Meeting will take place September 17-21 in Hershey, Pennsylvania.


"The MCAA Mid-Year meeting and the Hall of Fame dinner have become cornerstone events for us! We are thankful for the opportunity to celebrate and acknowledge the contributions of those long timers who have made such an impact on the craft. When people ask what I do for a living, I am humbled to say I work for a company that supplies builders with the tools they use to construct civilization. SOLA and Keson are striving to levels of excellence that these individuals embody.” 
Jude Nosek, VP of Sales and Marketing of Keson LLC

This continues SOLA’s involvement with the MCAA, which includes a Strategic Partnership, donating levels to MCAA events at World of Concrete, writing a monthly column in MASONRY Magazine. SOLA is also scheduled to participate in Hands-On Speed Dating during the 2023 Midyear Meeting.


“We would like to again thank SOLA for helping us continue to build the Masonry Hall of Fame into one of the flagship MCAA events. Their approach to this sponsorship is thoughtful and they’ve added their own touches to the event, such as providing a custom-engraved level to previous inductees into the Hall of Fame. We both share our tremendous respect and admiration for those who’ve dedicated their lives to support the masonry industry.”
Jeff Buczkiewicz, MCAA President and CEO


As part of The Masonry Hall of Fame Presented By SOLA 2023, all social media, print, digital, and video content will be co-branded. Additionally, the Awards Ceremony and Dinner itself will feature extensive branding recognizing SOLA for their generous support of the program.
