Held every four years, the North American Masonry Conference (NAMC) is a forum for the exchange of scientific, engineering, architectural, construction, evaluation, and repair information on masonry.

The 14th NAMC (the Conference) will be held in Omaha Nebraska on June 12-14, 2023. The Conference will be sponsored by The Masonry Society (TMS) and will be under the direction of co-chairs Dr. Ece Erdogmus and Dr. Melissa Hoffman of the University of Nebraska- Lincoln (UNL), with the advice and guidance of a TMS Steering Committee and the Nebraska Masonry Alliance. Consistent with the demonstrated needs of the professions, the Conference will retain its traditional strengths in the areas of engineering and architecture through involvement of professionals, contractors and industry. The Conference organizers are anticipating an attendance between 160 and 250 participants.
