The Civil Engineering Department at the University of Colorado Denver hosted the 12th North American Masonry Conference on May 17-20, 2015.


The 12th North American Masonry Conference was hosted by the Civil Engineering Department of the University of Colorado Denver and was lead by Dr. Frederick Rutz, University of Colorado Denver (UCD) and Michael Schuller, Atkinson-Noland & Associates (ANA), with local support from the Rocky Mountain Masonry Institute (RMMI). The Masonry Society coordinated the NAMC and served as its primary sponsor along with support from the masonry technical community.

The North American Masonry Conference (NAMC) served as a forum for the exchange of scientific, engineering, architectural, construction, evaluation, and repair information on masonry. The conference included technical papers and sessions, panel discussions, and other methods of information exchange. An NAMC, which is organized by The Masonry Society and a local hosting University, is now held every four years (up through the 8th NAMC in 1999 it was held every three years). The Masonry Society is soliciting proposals for the 13th North American Masonry Conference until July 31, 2015. If you have interest in possibly hosting the conference that would be held in 2019 please contact TMS.
