WHAT IS THE JOINT ANNUAL MEETING?

“What a terrific format and concept for the monument industry . . . two-and-a-half-days of intense networking and education!”

Every other year, MBNA teams up with a regional, state and/or provincial association to host what’s called the Joint Annual Meeting or JAM for short. The California Monument Association and the Pacific Northwest Monument Builders Association have teamed with MBNA to provide the same amazing levels of education, networking opportunities and vendor interactions as in other years, only in a smaller more intimate environment.

This will be 2012’s premier North American showcase of manufacturers and suppliers of mausoleums, monuments, equipment, and more!

Who should attend the Joint Annual Meeting?
  • All memorialization professionals
  • Owners and managers
  • Salespeople
  • Monument designers
  • Children of owners who are getting into the business
  • Shop personnel
  • Associates involved in the monument industry
Actually, anyone involved in the industry should be in San Diego in February. There will be something for everyone.
