Wilsonart will be hosting a National Day of Learning event to help architects and designers understand the complexities of endangered wood species and available tools to ensure compliance with sourcing regulations.
Wilsonart invites architects and designers across the U.S. to join in person or online for a CEU on the topic of Global Forestry and what architects and designers need to know to protect their practices. The CEU will take place October 18, 2017 at The Center for Architecture in NYC and will be livestreamed twice that day so participants outside of NYC can join. The Global Forestry CEU, which is accredited by AIA and IDCEC, will be presented by Grace Jeffers, thought leader, design historian and materials expert, who is known for an interdisciplinary and integrated approach to the study of materials.
There are livestream seats available for the 12:30 p.m. EDT or the 3:00 p.m. EDT session. Registration is required to receive WebEx information. For more information and to register, visit https://www.wilsonart.com/understanding-wood.
