The Mid Atlantic Construction Safety Conference (MACSC) is returning this spring in a big way! We are all aware the pandemic has created challenges and our conference has certainly felt the impact of those challenges. The construction industry continues as essential business and the dangers the industry faces have not gone away. In order to continue to meet the needs in the construction safety field, we are going to provide an all virtual conference this year.
We were unable to provide a 2020 conference but, we just can’t wait another year without reaching out to the construction industry. Our six sponsoring seed organizations have been busy developing the 2021 Conference.
This year’s (2021) conference (May 11th and 12th) will take place over two days, with 5 educational sessions each day. It will begin at 7am EDT both days and run through early afternoon. The agenda is being finalized and will be published soon.
We thank all of you who have supported the conference in the past. We look forward to a 2022 in person event that will be our best yet, thank you!
