Green Building Conference Seminar Proposals Due Aug. 10
With planning for the 10th Annual NAHB National Green Building Conference now under way, conference organizers are seeking candidates to conduct seminars and educational sessions during the three-day event. The deadline for proposal submissions is Aug. 10.
The conference will be held May 11 to 13 in New Orleans.
Almost 1,100 attended this year’s conference, which was held in St. Louis more than four months ago, and more are expected next year.
The annual NAHB event is the only national conference targeted to green home building for the mainstream residential building industry. Presenters will be addressing builders, remodelers, land developers, engineers, architects, planners, public officials and environmental activists.
Prospective speakers should describe their professional proficiency in areas such as energy efficiency, water conservation, indoor air quality, waste management, design and low-impact development. All proposals are evaluated based on relevance to green building, the timeliness of the topic and its practical application and the speaker’s qualifications.
“The breadth of the subject matter in the submissions we receive is pretty phenomenal,” said program manager Emily English, who works with the Green Building Subcommittee’s conference planning team to evaluate the proposals. “There’s just a lot of information out there, and I know that our members look to this conference to help them make sense of it all.”
