Our electric cooperative is joining with other Iowa Touchstone Energy Cooperatives to sponsor the annual “Momentum Is Building” conference February 8-9, 2018, at the Sheraton West Des Moines hotel.
For more than 25 years, Momentum Is Building has offered up-to-date building science information, practical hands-on information and new technology displays for building trades professionals – including homebuilders, electricians and heating-plumbing contractors, realtors, bankers, and others involved in the construction/retrofitting industries – along with rural electric cooperative personnel.
Nationally-recognized speakers will share their knowledge, including keynote speaker Gord Cooke, Construction Instruction, Ontario, Canada, who will discuss “Meeting the Expectations of Today’s Consumers with High Performance Homes.” Other conference topics include air quality and ventilation strategies, best building practices and techniques, high-performance HVAC, mechanical code updates, residential wiring updates, using social media and more.
Several sessions will offer CEUs, including up to six electrical CEUs and up to six CEUs in several HVAC discipline areas. Momentum Is Building also includes a trade show where attendees can visit with vendors from a variety of companies and see and learn about new products.
Momentum Is Building offers registration scholarships so instructors and students in high school and community college building trades programs can attend.
