Workshops at the 2017 Conference – Wednesday, May 3

The 2017 Conference features more than a 30 (yes, 30!) workshops and seminars to help you and your business create healthy, sustainable indoor spaces.  We have sessions on building science, energy efficiency, investigations, sampling, design and construction, facility operations and management, IAQ and health, risk management, ventilation, marketing, and project management.  No matter how your work connects you to the indoor environment, there is a workshop (or two, or three, or more) here for you.
