CMCB Calls for Program Idea Submissions

With the first quarter of checkoff assessments now in the bank, the Concrete Masonry Checkoff Board is now accepting submissions for program ideas around one of our six strategic pillars: design assistance, educating design pros, workforce development, marketing, codes and standards and finally, research.

To preview the questions and information you'll need to provide, follow this link.

Proposal(s) for both national and regional Checkoff-funded programs can be submitted HERE. The deadline for consideration this quarter is Friday, September 29.

Note: The deadline of September 29th is to guarantee review of the submitted program by the Board at the November 14-15 meeting in Dallas, TX. If a program is submitted after that deadline, the Board will do its best to consider it for funding in November. Otherwise, the Board will guarantee submissions made after September 29th will be reviewed at its February 2024 meeting.

"This is the moment we’ve been waiting for ," says CMCB Chair Major Ogilvie. "This is a chance for everyone to be heard and share the ideas they’re most passionate about pursuing on our way to a prosperous future. And we welcome all proposals; anyone is welcome to submit program ideas for review."

The Board will convene in November to review all regional and national program submissions. Responses will be sent to those who have been awarded funding around the middle of December.


The Concrete Masonry Checkoff represents block producers from around the U.S. with a vision of creating a future where concrete block is preferred among engineers, builders, architects and designers; block products are regularly specified to build more resilient communities around the country; and manufacturers are regularly increasing production to meet expanding demand.
