Lunch & Learn Sessions
As we come to a close on the first term (April 1 – July 31) of our fiscal year (April 1 – March 31), we are completing one of our busiest times ever for the Specifiers Program, as interest from both industry and the specifier community has been nothing short of remarkable.  Even July, which historically is a quiet month for architectural activity, will see its share of Lunch & Learn sessions.
Having said that, the program will definitely slowdown from now through to late September when we expect activity will once again be brisk.
WoodTALKS 2017 at the GBM

As stated in our last Wood Connections, while the activity in our Specifier Program slows significantly during summer, this is the time of year when preparations for the entire GBM, including our WoodTALKS program, kicks into high gear.

Since our last Wood Connections, I am pleased to report that we have finalized a full complement of speakers for WoodTALKS 2017! The line up includes an additional 3 speakers, back by popular demand, as we are returning to a full schedule of seminars on Thursday, Sept 7th.
Speakers include:
  • Thomas Robinson of Lever Architects in Portland, the architect for the world’s tallest all wood building (Brock Commons has a concrete core),
  • Oberto Oberti, one of Vancouver’s most iconic architects
  • Speakers from Perkins + Will, Patkau, Bing Thom and Cornerstone Architects

Also, for the first time, we are having a speaker from a steel prefabricating company who will be discussing Timber & Steel – Working Together – and will provide insight from a steel fabricators perspective.

We will now focus on what has become the very popular Exhibitor Mini-Seminar Program, where we currently have all but 2 exhibitor spots filled for those companies who want to present their products to the specifying community.
