• Order:
    The Department of Commerce (DOC) and masonry leaders are finalizing a draft of a document called the Order to outline how a CMU Checkoff will work. The Order will likely be published in the first quarter of 2020.
  • Comment:
    Once the draft Order is made public there will be an open comment period of at least 60 days when anyone can share support, questions or other comments.
  • Register:
    Concrete masonry unit manufacturing companies will be provided an opportunity to register to vote on a revised version of the Order.
  • Vote:
    Manufacturing company representatives who have pre-registered will be provided an opportunity to vote for or against implementation of the Checkoff. The vote to approve the CMU Checkoff is expected in 2020.
  • Approve:
    The DOC will declare the Checkoff approved if a majority of the voting companies vote in favor of the program and if those companies represent a majority of the machine cavities of all voting companies.
