Featured programs

Making the case for energy efficiency: sales tactics that work

Unless the benefits of enhanced efficiency are reframed so that they can be measured with yardsticks that organizations are already using to gauge success, proposals for saving energy will continue to be rejected or simply ignored. During this session, you'll learn how to create marketing tools that will capture the attention of decision makers on topics related to energy including elevator pitches, one-page proposals and one-page financial analyses.

Understanding power quality disturbances

Electrical power quality is critical to every facility's operation. We'll explore what power quality disturbances are and at what magnitude industry standards consider them to be problematic. In additional, we'll explore numerous possible sources of power quality problems, the advantages and disadvantages of different types of power quality solutions, as well as protective equipment for particular disturbances.

Sustainability in the built environment: trends, opportunities, and your practice

During this panel discussion, we'll explore components of a recently published AIA study and take a critical look at how key issues such as code changes, benchmarking ordinances, resilience in design, and the shifting criteria for design awards are taking hold nationally and locally. At the end of the day, we'll share light appetizers and refreshments.
