Normally, summer is almost void of specifier events; however, this year, the program has been quite active! We have held several lunch and learn sessions and booked several more for the fall.

WoodTALKS at the GBM

This year’s program has been finalized including the speakers and the exhibitors who will be participating in the Mini-Seminar program. We are very pleased with the quality of the speakers who will be presenting at WoodTALKS and the variety of topics they will be presenting. We have also maximized the number of exhibitors participating in the Mini-Seminar program.

The entire program has been approved by two architect associations for educational credits, AIBC and AIA. In both cases, the associations have approved the highest educational credits they provide. Just recently, we received approval from the BC Housing – Licensing and Consumer Services (formerly Homeowner Protection Office), for their Continuing Professional Development (CPD) educational credits. Contractors who are licensed with that association will now also receive educational credits for attending WoodTALKS, just like the architects.

This year, we expect a 15 – 20% increase over last year in the number of specifiers, contractors, etc. that will be attending. Also, we expect a few of the American architects who will be participating in the Building Connections program on Thursday to stay over Friday and Saturday and attend the WoodTALKS seminars.
