(Editors Note on January 11: Deadline extended to January 17th to submit your presentation)
From the first post in August 2016, one of the core beliefs of 'Let's Fix Construction' has been the open sharing of knowledge. Whether acquired in a classroom setting, from a trusted mentor, or learned directly in the field, what good is having facts, informationa and skills if it is not freely and willingly shared with others?
Year after year, there is one place in construction where all members of the project team: specifiers, architects, engineers, contractors, facility managers, product representatives, manufacturers, owners and others converge to acquire and share industry knowledge: CONSTRUCT. The Construction Specifications Institute annual meeting and affiliated tradeshow hosts dozens of project team instructors who share their acquired knowledge to attendees who are there to learn and absorb new information.
Now is your chance to share your knowledge and turn what you’ve learned into a unique presentation that will help improve the construction community. Consider submitting a Call for Presentations proposal for CONSTRUCT 2017, which is taking place on September 13-16 at the Rhode Island Convention Center in Providence, RI.
CONSTRUCT welcomes compelling proposals that address a wide range of topics relevant to the commercial building team and those who design, build, specify, engineer, renovate and operate in the built environment. With over 40 accredited sessions and non-conflicting exhibit hall hours, the education program is an integral part of the CONSTRUCT event experience for specifiers, architects, designers, product reps, contractors, engineers, project managers, and other industry professionals.
The deadline for submitting a proposal is approaching fast on January 17, 2017. Have a topic in mind for CONSTRUCT? Now is the time to pitch your fix!
