Kevin Scheer asked the members what topics they would like to see for next spring’s breakout training sessions, the following ideas were mentioned:
Framing, stick framed roofs, plan review, zoning, pools/spas/hot tubs, post frame construction, trusses, solar panels, wind generators, fire rated construction, storm shelters for schools, existing buildings meeting ADA and other requirements. A forum will be started on the MACA website for members to post more suggestions.
Traey Lambertz started a discussion on Camden on the Lake as the location for the MACA training. Camden was a big improvement, the staff was very attentive. A majority of the members stated that they would like a full breakfast on the last day of training. There was a suggestion for the lunch served on the day of the banquet to be lighter; with soup, salad, and a sandwich buffet.
Traey Lambertz suggested the spring 2017 conference to be held the first part of April, and the fall 2017 conference to be held the first part of October.
Aaron Smith and Kevin Scheer discussed the National Meeting held in Long Beach California. It was a great experience; meeting people from all over, everyone was eager to help, the number of people in attendance was shocking.
There was a discussion about preferred provider requirements. Every year the number of CEU required to be from a preferred provider increases. MACA has the ability to hire an instructor that is not a preferred provider if we submit their presentation to ICC for pre-approval. We are currently paying $200 a year to be a preferred provider, that price will be going up to $250.
