OTTAWA — The Mechanical Contractors Association of Canada (MCAC) is hosting the association’s first-ever online conference on May 27, with a full day of sessions scheduled.
Themed “Beyond 2020,” the conference program will have sessions focusing on the future of the industry, training, new technologies and how federal and provincial programs will address the post-pandemic landscape.
Registration for MCAC members is $150, with $50 of those fees being donated to Food Banks Canada. As well, $100 will be applied to any future MCAC Annual National Conferences should delegates wish to attend. Delegates will also be provided a subscription for the remainder of the year to the ConstructConnect Forecaster Monthly Newsletter.
Conference participants will be provided a login to view all sessions throughout the day, as well as have access to the recordings of the sessions post-conference. The program will begin at 10:30 a.m. EST and finish at 5 p.m.
The conference program will begin with an economic outlook from ConstructConnect and follow with sessions on federal/provincial advocacy, new technologies to assist with business growth strategies, virtual skills training and a session on BIM and modularization.
“As an association, we are very excited to be hosting this first-of-its-kind conference to provide some unique and exclusive programming for our members,” said MCAC CEO Tania Johnston in a release. “So much of our education of late has focused on the COVID-19 pandemic. Instead, this program will provide a look ahead at what our industry might look like beyond the pandemic and beyond 2020.”
