Area builders and contractors are invited to learn about energy-efficiency technologies at the 2022 Momentum is Building (MIB) Conference, scheduled for Feb. 3 and 4 at the Meadows Event Center in Altoona.

A major draw for electricians, plumbers and HVAC professionals is the opportunity to earn CEU credits at the conference. MIB attendees can also network with industry professionals, hear from recognized industry energy-efficiency and building-trades experts, and gain insight on trending technologies. Registration is now open at

Sponsored and organized annually by the Touchstone Energy Cooperatives® of Iowa, the Momentum is Building Conference also connects Iowa’s construction industry with the local services and resources available from electric cooperatives, serving nearly 650,000 Iowans in all 99 counties.

“Iowa’s electric co-ops have long-supported energy-efficiency efforts and one of our goals is to help member-consumers use energy wisely,” states Angela Catton, manager of member relations and development at Northwest Iowa Power Cooperative. “We invest in this conference to build local relationships.”

“Helping inform local contractors about cutting-edge energy-efficiency and beneficial-electrification technologies is important to Iowa’s electric cooperatives,” said Ryan Cornelius, vice president of corporate relations at Corn Belt Power Cooperative. “For over 25 years, the Momentum is Building Conference has provided both electric cooperatives and contractors an opportunity to come together to provide rural Iowans with safe, efficient and cost-effective home comfort solutions.”

Weldon Long, a bestselling author and sales expert, will open the conference on Feb. 3 as he talks about achieving personal and professional greatness in the face of adversity. Comedian Greg Warren will close out the conference on Feb. 4 as he shares humorous stories of overcoming setbacks throughout his life.

MIB 2022 will be held at the Meadows Event Center beginning at 8:00 a.m. on Thursday, Feb. 3 running through noon on Friday, Feb. 4. Registration for the event is available online at Early Bird registration is available until Jan. 19.
