TAPPI Building Scienes Committee Announces Fall Meeting

Print Print this article | Send to Colleague

Make plans to attend the 2013 Building Sciences Committee Fall Meeting September 18-20.

The Building Sciences Committee has designed a strong technical program for production managers and engineers to provide firsthand knowledge to improve their fiberglass mat process with practical production-targeted papers.

This year's program will include papers on: Process Variation Reduction, Glass Sizing Basics; Burner Safety and Efficiency; Biological Treatment Case Study, Operator and Mechanical Training to Enhance Operational Effectiveness; IT Systems to Manage Roll Goods and Reduce Waste.

We are pleased that Tim Worms of 3M will return by popular demand to present his updated Roofing Market Overview and Forecast.

The meeting will be held at The Hilton Marco Island Beach Resort in Marco Island, Fla. USA. TAPPI has negotiated a very economical room rate of $109.00 per night per guest. This rate is good for TAPPI members for stays of any length from Wednesday, September 18, through Sunday, September 22. Group dinners Wednesday and Thursday evenings will provide opportunities to meet other manufacturing personnel and suppliers, and their cost is included in the cost of the meeting. These will be excellent networking opportunities.

Thursday's afternoon recreational activity (also included in the registration price) is a choice of golf, coastal fishing, or an afternoon at the spa. Non-registered spouses and guests are welcome to participate in the activities and dinners for the following costs: $60 per dinner and $95 for golf, fishing, or the spa treatment. They do not have to pay the conference registration fee.
