We will join other Iowa electric cooperatives to sponsor the annual Momentum Is Building conference February 7-8, 2019 at the Sheraton West Des Moines hotel. This conference provides continuing education for local building trades professionals so they can continue to build and remodel homes using the latest building science techniques.
Our REC has been involved in Momentum Is Building for more than 25 years. The conference draws homebuilders, electricians and heating-plumbing contractors, educators, students and others involved in the construction/retrofitting industries – along with rural electric cooperative personnel.
Topics and speakers will focus on industry best practices and new products and techniques in the building industry, as well as sessions on running a better business in Iowa. Topics for the 2019 conference include HERS ratings and energy modeling, air-source heat pump technology, smart home products, solar and more. Several sessions will offer CEUs, including up to six electrical CEUs and up to six CEUs in several HVAC discipline areas.
If you are interested in attending or know a building trades professional who might be, contact us or visit www.momentumisbuilding.com for information or to register. If you are interested in working with a contractor who has attended Momentum Is Building, contact us for that information, too.
