C3 Conference 2016

Once again, the Willamette Valley Chapter of the Construction Specifications Institute is making construction communication and collaboration the focus of the biggest event on its 2016 calendar. The annual C3 Conference will take place on Thursday, February 25 at the Hilton Hotel & Conference Center in downtown Eugene. If you weren’t already planning to, mark your calendars and be sure to attend the construction industry event of the year! 
As with previous editions of C3, this year’s conference program offers a products show, free educational seminars, and an economic forecast dinner. The seminar offerings include a total of three pairs of topics from which to choose. Each of the six sessions qualifies for one AIA learning unit (or other industry continuing education credit), so those of you who are currently 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! 
Exhibitors expected to feature their latest products and/or services at the show will include:
  • AEP Span
  • Assa Abloy
  • Atez
  • Ausland Group
  • Benjamin Moore
  • Central Print
  • Dea Mor
  • Green Feathers

C3’s can’t miss dinner program will feature Brian Rooney, Regional Economist for the State of Oregon Employment Department.

Mr. Rooney is a graduate of Oregon State University with a Master’s degree in economics; and of George Washington University with a Bachelor’s degree in economics. Prior to his work with the state, Mr. Rooney worked as an analyst for ICF International Consulting, a Washington D.C. based engineering and economics consulting firm.
