Building Innovation 2019: The National Institute of Building Sciences Seventh Annual Conference & Expo, to be held January 7-10, 2019, in Washington, D.C., is a great way to earn continuing education units (CEUs) while hearing from a diverse group of speakers.
This is the industry’s only all-inclusive event where members of the entire building community come together to connect, collaborate and create solutions that benefit the built environment. With the theme of Optimizing for Tomorrow, the Conference will deliver educational content designed to engage the entire building community, cover a variety of concepts and present diverse perspectives during each session to stimulate creative ideas, present new approaches and develop workable solutions for the entire building industry. Building Innovation 2019 sessions have received approval for a total of 27 Learning Units (LUs) from the American Institute of Architects, many of which are Health, Safety, Welfare (HSW) hours, as well as 27 contact hours from the International Code Council for a total of 2.7 CEUs. To receive credit, AIA and ICC members must provide their member numbers upon registration and be scanned for all sessions they attend.
Building Innovation 2019 Sessions include:
Day Two: Tuesday, January 8
Day Three: Wednesday, January 9
Be sure to attend Monday to get a first-hand view of how the Institute works to improve the built environment and find ways to get involved in the process by attending the council and committee meetings. Other opportunities to hear from industry leaders include the Tuesday Opening Keynote Breakfast and the Wednesday FEDCon® Keynote Breakfast and Plenary Keynote Luncheon. During the Tuesday Exhibit Hall Walking Lunch and Exhibitors’ Reception, attendees will see the latest industry technologies as exhibitors present in the Exhibit Hall.
