Greeting Fellow Masonry Instructors:

                        We want to take this opportunity to Welcome and Strongly Encourage all Instructors and their Families to be here for the Annual Banquet.  We know this is short notice, but the pandemic sort of threw us a curve but it did not stop us. This is an exciting time and place because we can all get back together, we are taking all safety precaution to assure everyone’s safety and have a great time. People like you, who provided the makeup of the people we are and the success, that this Organization has achieved. 

            Be here on Sunday, July 11, 2021 – (Reunion Meet & Greet) the time & place-TBA.  If you cannot make it, just send your membership dues ($50). And we will still acknowledge your participation Tuesday evening at our annual banquet.  We are looking forward to seeing You (Standing and speaking) for Yourself.  The schedule for the Conference is complete and it is subject to change as we receive more information and make adjustments if needed.

            Remember when the Awards Banquet Room was full of capacity with Instructors and their Families and Guest Speakers.  Everyone was excited and truly enjoying being apart of such a great organization.  Even the Children were glad to pull drawing tickets for door prizes at the event and even some parents named their kids – Brick, Mason, and Pebbles at their birth.  (Mr. & Mrs. Terry Miller…”We remember”)

            Now is the time to plan on returning for one more Great Reunion as NMIA Members /Past/or Retired.  When you think about the (32) years, this Organization has been in existence….It’s a Wonderful Blessing we can take pride in – but the Glory comes from Almighty God and we say “Thank You”! Think about what has happen in that length of time; In reality, it translates into many Years, Month, Weeks, Days and Hours.  This organization has grown right along with us; So like us in so many ways, we require nourishment and up – keep – the organization require some of the same up – keep.  If we are to remain a force in the Masonry Industry, this organization needs your support ever more today to ensure those current students and those coming after them receive the education and training we can provide. So make plans to attend the National Masonry Instructors Conference this year in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

            Remember the Date July 11-14, 2021; we are working diligently to make this year’s conference a CONFERENCE TO REMEMBER.  Bring all your (camera’s/video equip) etc. You can find us social media. (face book)
