O.K., backyard is such a relative term here in the US. The national PH conference in Portland is just about a 3 hour drive from here. I signed up right away because I wanted the chance to get into one of the additional workshops and take advantage of the room package pricing that PHIUS has arranged for attendees. What better way to see the conference than to roll out of bed, grab some breakfast and head downstairs!
If you haven’t signed up for the conference yet, but are planning to go – give the good folks at PHIUS a help with the expected headcount by signing up soon. If you are unsure if you want to attend, be sure to check out the information on the PHIUS website. The list of presenters is long and full of interesting people – there should be something for everyone.
I know I was quite excited to see the additional consultants workshops and had a hard time choosing between the all day multi-family one or attending the half day retrofit one and the half day THERM one. I finally settled on the Multi-Family workshop and hope a fellow consultant who attends the other two will take good notes!
It should really be a great conference. There is also an optional tour of some local projects on Sunday the 7th. If you are going, sign up soon! When you are there look me up and let me know what you think of the blog!
