StructureOregon 2011

Chris Knowles, Assistant Professor in the College of Forestry at Oregon State University, brought to my attention the upcoming StructureOregon 2011 conference, which will be held at the Oregon Convention Center in Portland on June 1. The conference’s focus is the utilization of local wood products in sustainable design. It will feature an impressive lineup of speakers that will address a wide range of topics including advanced wood framing technologies, the properties and applications of native Oregon wood species, and barriers to using wood in sustainable design.

StructureOregon 2011 is an opportunity for the design community to:
  • Better understand how to communicate with wood products companies
  • Learn about the challenges and opportunities for designing with local wood products
  • Become familiar with local wood products sources
  • Be in the know about innovative new wood products
  • Be alerted to current and future trends for wood use
Conversely, the conference will offer participants from the forest products industry the occasion to:
  • Discover new markets for wood products
  • Become better equipped to communicate with designers
  • Spend the day with design professionals responsible for selecting and specifying wood products and systems
The all-day conference is a production of Oregon State University Conference Services. The event’s sponsors include OSU, the Oregon Wood Innovation Center, Business Oregon, Umpqua Training & Employment, the Oregon Consortium & Oregon Workforce Alliance, and Worksource Oregon.

You can acquire 5 CEU/CLUs by attending a full slate of educational sessions. The conference will include a vendor show featuring locally sourced and manufactured wood products.
