Call for conference proposals

The Natural Building Alliance is now seeking presentation and workshop proposals for our upcoming Rocky Mountain Natural Building Conference. The Keynote speaker for this year’s conference will be Chris Magwood of the Endeavour Centre in Ontario, Canada. We plan to have several “breakout” presentations and/or discussions in the three rooms provided at the MARC, similar to our conferences in the past. This year, we also plan to have multiple on-site or off-site hands-on workshops, which could occur during the conference or perhaps a day before or after. If you’d like to be a presenter or workshop host at this year’s conference, please read on.
