“A topic description must be provided addressing the speaker’s subject knowledge and the level of knowledge that will be presented to the attendee (i.e., beginner, intermediate or advanced),” RCI said in its announcement. “Six RCI CEHs will be granted for an accepted paper. Additionally, presenters will earn triple credit for the length of the program (one presentation hour yields three CEHs).”

Some suggested topics include:

  • Facade Systems & Technologies;
  • Unique Facade Design Solutions;
  • The Building Envelope as a Design Statement;
  • Sealants—Design & Selection/Appropriate Specifications/Quality Assurance;
  • EIFS;
