For nearly 40 years, the Metal Construction Association (MCA) has focused on one key strategy – to promote the use of metal in the building envelope through marketing, education, and action on public policies that affect metal’s use. It is a volunteer-led organization with much of the work achieved through strong leadership by its board of directors and member-driven MCA councils and committees. In addition to the annual METALCON event, full membership meetings are held twice each year with the next one coming up next month in the beauty and warmth of the Sonoran Desert in Scottsdale, Arizona.


The MCA Winter Meeting is currently scheduled to take place “in person” January 24-26, 2022, at the Scottsdale Resort at McCormick Ranch in Scottsdale, Arizona. This meeting is an opportunity to participate in marketing and technical initiatives related to metal in construction. Between meetings and events there will also be time to network with other metal construction professionals. Members and non-members are welcome to attend and need to register in advance. Registration includes access to educational sessions, keynote address, welcome reception, awards reception and dinner. Optional events require advance registration and additional fees. Non-members can learn about special pricing when you join prior to the event by emailing
