The Masonry Association of Florida, Inc. along with the Florida Concrete & Products Association formed an apprentice foundation to add new and expand masonry apprentice programs.
The Florida Masonry Apprentice and Education Foundation, Inc. was created in 2002 to add new and expand existing apprenticeship programs and offer education to the masonry industry. The Mission of the Foundation is:
“To coordinate and provide education of the masonry trade”
The strategic goals of the Foundation are:
keep up with the demand of the masonry trade to keep our industry viable and competitive. It is estimated that 300-500 new masons per year are needed to support demand and address attrition.
