NRMCA, Build With Strength Present Educational Seminars at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020
NRMCA and Build With Strength are presenting a full complement of educational seminars during next month's CONEXPO-CON/AGG Show in Las Vegas. Each week until the beginning of the show, E-NEWS will highlight a single seminar, beginning with Pathway to Resilience: Concrete Solutions to Sustainable Communities scheduled for Tuesday, March 10, from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. in South Hall S 232.
Over the past several decades, there has been a continuous increase in human and economic loss from disaster events. The rise in disasters and their consequences are related to a rise in people’s vulnerability, induced by human development. This seminar will offer a view on emerging risks and opportunities with the overarching goal of supporting and advancing resilience of buildings and critical infrastructure using concrete. Speakers include NRMCA Senior Vice President of Codes and Standards Tien Peng and Evan Reis of the US Resiliency Council.
