BETEC and BECs Spring Meeting: Takin’ Care of Business

Apr 29, 2021   |   12:00 PM – 2:00 PM ET
Virtual Meeting

The Building Enclosure Technology and Environment Council (BETEC) is charged with encouraging optimum energy use of buildings through a better understanding of how overall, complex building components interact with each other and the environment.

BETEC members work together to share knowledge of existing and new technologies and practices, and to integrate technical programs on building safety, durability, resilience and occupant comfort with the thermal performance of building envelopes. The Building Enclosure Councils (BECs), a joint venture between the American Institute of Architects and NIBS under the aegis of BETEC, host some 4,000 members in 34 local chapters.
