Annual MBCEA Conference

51st Annual MBCEA Conference was held virtually from May 19 – June 18, 2020!

2020 has certainly turned out to be an interesting year.  As most of you know, due to the pandemic and travel restrictions we had to cancel the 51st Annual MBCEA Conference in Colorado this year.  That was sad and unexpected, but what really surprised and amazed us was how our membership has proved their support and flexibility by joining our month-long series of webinars offered in place of the event.

By changing our three-day live event into a 30 day event online, we were actually able to offer 10 unique seminars to help provide important industry information and money making opportunities to our membership.  And based on the hundreds of attendees we had, it seems our members appreciated these sessions.  If you somehow missed any or all of them, it’s not too late to learn about energy codes, accreditation, wall and roof specialties, and even leadership skills in a Covid world.  We will keep the videos of all of these sessions available to you on the Whova app for the next 6 months (June-December).  Just register for the virtual conference, follow the steps to download the app, and you can see what you missed!  After that, they will be available in the members area of our website, with a few available on our YouTube channel.

Thanks for all of the participation from our great members, and for those who haven’t yet joined, you can find out all of the many ways we support our membership by calling or emailing us.  All of us here at the MBCEA are excited to see you all at the 2021 Conference next year on April 28-30, in Nashville!

Thank you to our sponsors for supporting our move to a virtual conference.

Metal building contractors, erectors, suppliers and manufacturers gathered at the 50th Annual MBCEA Conference May 1-3, 2019, at the Hilton Myrtle Beach Resort, South Carolina, to learn from the experts, network with key industry people, visit with old friends, hear about the latest products, and discuss leading issues with peers.  Some highlights were Keynote Speaker, Gene Marks, the MBCEA Building of the Year Awards, the Metal Construction Hall of Fame Awards and a new joint MBCEA/MBMA Roundtable. Our third year co-locating with the MBMA Spring Meeting was another success and the consensus is we’ll keep doing it!
