UMCA General Meeting

  • 07/09/2024
  • 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM
  • 12750 Merit Drive, Dallas, Texas


Registration is closed

Please join us for a UMCA General Meeting on July 9th.  This month, we will be meeting at Cutler-Smith, P.C.'s office building in Dallas, Texas.  We are fortunate to have our very own general counsel, Spike Cutler, as our speaker that evening.  Spike often times jokingly refers to himself as a "damn lawyer," but most of us at UMCA know him to be a "damn good lawyer" and one we can count on to stand up for subcontractors like us whenever we need him.  

We're going to have a fun format where we ask our members to submit legal questions (obviously pertaining to construction law or things that can impact us in the masonry industry) to Liz and Spike will be answering as many as he can.  We're calling it a "legal grab-bag."  It will be incredibly beneficial to all of our members.  We hope to see you all there!  

Question Submission:

Submit your questions to Liz at by Friday, July 9th.  Everyone that submits a question will be entered into a drawing for a door prize.  

Sponsor Opportunity

We are looking for a bar sponsor so if you're interested in hosting our "open bar," we'd love to have you.  Please register for the Bar Sponsorship ticket.
