NRMCA Educates Specifiers on Green Building
In late June, NRMCA’s Vice President, Sustainability, Tien Peng and Senior Director, Sustainability Initiatives, James Bogdan led courses in Ronkonkoma, NY, (Long Island) and Fairfax, VA (metropolitan Washington, DC) on Building Green with Concrete. The courses were delivered though collaboration with education partner HalfMoon Education Inc. and offered continuing education credits. NRMCA presented to 25 architects, engineers and industry professionals on industry green initiatives.
NRMCA encourages its members to participate in local professional groups, such as AIA, ASCE or USGBC local chapters, and offer topics and speakers for education programs. For those who feel comfortable presenting, NRMCA also has a number of prescribed presentations ranging from specifying sustainable concrete to LCA of concrete structures. For the most complex topics, NRMCA can also provide technical staff to present at local events.
