The Metal Construction Association (MCA) will hold its 2011 Semi-Annual Meeting Aug. 1-3 at The Umstead in Raleigh, N.C.

Look for additional information about the Semi-Annual Meeting soon on the MCA website at www.metalconstruction.org.

MCA is a volunteer-led organization with much of the work achieved through strong leadership by its board of directors and member-driven councils and committees. Meetings are typically held in January and mid-year, usually in July or August. These events include interactive council and committee sessions with discussion of current work in development.

In addition to national meetings, MCA's major annual event is the METALCON International Exhibition and Conference, which provides a multi-level learning experience through exhibits of the latest products from leading industry companies, a comprehensive education program with AIA credit courses, and three days of live-action demonstrations.

METALCON is the only show devoted entirely to the use of metal in construction. The 2011 METALCON Conference is scheduled for Oct. 11-13 in Atlanta, Ga.
