The Air Barrier Association of America educated and honored industry professionals this week at its sixth annual conference (April 18-20) in Reston, Virginia.

The three-day long program was complete with keynote speakers, training sessions and three comprehensive learning tracks tailored to different facets of professionals in the industry (contractor sessions, design professionals training, and testing, analysis and quality assurance).

“Air barriers are critical to building success,” the association said in an announcement on the conference program earlier this year. “Without a modern understanding of air and moisture management, a flood of energy loss, repairs, and reputation are at risk.”
