From its headquarters and laboratory near Dulles Airport in suburban Virginia, the National Concrete Masonry Association (NCMA) provides a voice for the U.S. concrete masonry industry. Since its founding in 1918, the association has supported concrete masonry producers as well as allied product and service suppliers through promotional efforts, technical assistance, research, lobbying, and communications linking fabricators, customers and specifiers.
NCMA’s extensive technical services include research and design aids, distributed through publications, computer programs, slide presentations, and technical training. The association’s service sectors include Residential Products, Landscape Products, and Commercial Products. Educational programming is also provided.
NCMA staff and volunteers are particularly active in ASTM standards committees and other code bodies. Its world-famous Research & Development Laboratory is a leader in product testing and validation.
The NCMA Education and Research Foundation serves concrete masonry producers and their allies as an affiliate whose mission is to advance both the industry and the public interest through research and education programs designed to meet future needs. The foundation has funded over $60,000 in scholarships as well as several projects in the areas of workforce development and codes and standards research. Each year, its source of income increases, providing more funds for future project investment.
NCMA president is Mark Hogan. The association is located just east of Dulles International Airport at 13750 Sunrise Valley Drive, Herndon, VA 20171-4662, tel.: 703/713-1900; fax: 703/713-1910; e-mail: [email protected]; web site: www.ncma.org.
