2014 University Professors' Masonry Workshop Scheduled for March 16-18 at
University of Nevada Las Vegas

We hope to see you for the 2014 UPMW on March 16-18, 2014 at



The University Professorsí Masonry Workshop (UPMW) is a forum for faculty teaching masonry to learn about the design, specification, construction, and evaluation of masonry, and effective ways to teach this information to their students. The goal of the UPMW is simple: to assist with developing knowledgeable future designers and construction managers that are comfortable with masonry. As such, the UPMW is a type of "train the trainers" program, where professors can exchange ideas about masonry education and learn from their peers and industry representatives. As part of the Workshop, textbooks, design guides, software, industry resources, and other tools are discussed with the intent of exposing the attendees to the resources available to assist them with their masonry courses.

Through the generous financial support of the Concrete Masonry Association of California and Nevada (CMACN) and the Masonry Institute of America (MIA), The Masonry Society has scheduled the next Workshop for March 16-18, 2014 at the University of Nevada Las Vegas, College of Engineering, Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering and Construction. Dr. Nader Ghafoori, Professor of Civil Engineering at UNLV, will serve as the workshop host. Additional assistance for the workshop is being provided by the Brick Industry Association (BIA), the National Concrete Masonry Association (NCMA), the Portland Cement Association (PCA), and Western States Clay Products Association (WSCPA).
