"The biggest reasons I support the checkoff program are: You can’t change codes and standards at the local level, you must have a national presence which you will have with a checkoff program. Also, if you look at the ROA of other checkoff programs it’s a no brainer from an investment standpoint."
"In today’s competitive landscape, promoting our industry has become more important than ever. The CMU checkoff program is the only clear path forward to compete with other building systems."
"The checkoff will create more strict building codes, better building codes.That's one thing that a checkoff will help us with, allow us to have a more national presence."
"I think the checkoff program will be great for the industry, helping to restore the market share that we have forfeited to competing construction materials. Working together we will be able to achieve continual growth, profitability and longevity of the masonry industry."
