C3 Conference 2014

Construction communication and collaboration are the focus of the biggest design & construction forum on the 2014 calendar for the Willamette Valley Chapter of the Construction Specifications Institute. Dubbed by the organizers as “C3 (C3 being a contraction of “Construction Communication & Collaboration”), the January 30 event will take place the Hilton Hotel & Conference Center in Eugene and succeeds the Willamette Valley Chapter’s production of its previous annual conference under the “BUILD” banner. 

The name may have changed this year but the content and information that you can gain from attending is better than ever. The free products show and educational seminars have always offered fantastic, convenient opportunities to learn about the latest developments in construction industry technology, practices, and knowledge. This year’s conference program includes two seminar tracks with three sessions each. One track will focus on technical presentations of various communication aspects within projects. The other will be a products and materials presentation track. Each seminar qualifies for one AIA learning unit (or other industry continuing education credit), so those of you who currently are short of your requisite yearly total should definitely plan on attending. No pre-registration is necessary for either the product show or the educational seminars: just show up and you’re in! 

C3’s can’t miss dinner program will feature Dr. Timothy Duy, who will present the latest information about the state of Oregon’s economy. Dr. Duy is Director of the Oregon Economic Forum and the author of the University of Oregon Index of Economic Indicators, the Central Oregon Business Index, the Lane County Business Index, and the Portland Metro Business Index. He has published in the Journal of Economics and Business and is currently a member of the Oregon Governor's Council of Economic Advisors. 

RSVP by Noon, Friday January 24, 2014 to Alorie Mayer to assure your place at the dinner program. There will only be a limited number of spaces available on program day. 

I hope you’ll join me and many others by attending the C3 Conference on Thursday, January 30. It’s sure to be a great event (the previous BUILD conferences always were) and will only be more so with your participation. See you there!
