The event: CSI Columbus and USGBC Ohio Chapter will host DesignColumbus 2017 on Tuesday, October 10, 2017 at the Ohio Union. Hundreds of building professionals will come together for a day of outstanding education sessions on current sustainable design solutions and networking. Participants will include the entire design and construction community of Central Ohio, including owners, facility managers, developers, designers, architects, engineers, landscape architects, specifiers, contractors, construction managers, and product representatives.
Be a presenter: Proposals are being requested for project team presentations, single presenters, seminars, and panel discussions that address the educational needs of these stakeholders. We are looking for Innovative Sustainable Design Solution presentations. Preferred projects can be “real” projects or conceptual designs, and can be in any phase of design/construction or recent completion. Preferred projects will be Central Ohio focused or involve a local design/construction team. No sessions that are based upon an advertisement, product or service will be accepted.
Presenters will be assisted in obtaining AIA and GBCI learning units for these presentations. LEED-Specific presentations are encouraged. A LEED-Specific presentation needs 75% or more of the content related directly to the current versions of the LEED Rating Systems and Reference Guides, LEED certification process and/or LEED Online. Education sessions are scheduled for 60 minutes in length.
Presenter benefits: The presenters for each session selected to be part of DesignColumbus 2017 will receive a complimentary registration to the conference with lunch provided. Plan now to share your expertise and stand out among your peers!
