As an association of concrete masonry block manufacturers, CMACN’s mission is to strengthen the masonry industry in California and Nevada by providing a technical information resource on concrete masonry for design professionals, protect and advance the interests of concrete masonry industry, develop new and existing markets for concrete masonry products, and coordinate our members’ efforts in solving common problems within the masonry industry.
