2020 Rocky Mountain Natural Building Conference

NBA is officially hosting another Rocky Mountain Natural Building Conference – Yay!  Planning for the conference is in it’s early stages, but here’s what we can tell you: 

It will be held at the Moab Arts and Recreation Center in beautiful Moab, UT, USA — our first conference outside of Colorado, and home to Community Rebuilds.  It will officially run from Thursday, March 26th through Saturday, March 28th.  Our Keynote Speaker for the conference with be Chris Magwood of the Endeavour Centre, from Peterborough, Ontario, Canada.  We can’t wait!!!

Many things dependent, there may be some extracurricular events before and/or after the official conference… more on those later if they materialize.  But, as you may know, Moab, UT is situated in close proximity to some absolutely amazing national parks and recreation areas.  We highly encourage you to reserve some extra days before/after the conference to explore the area and have fun.

Please stay tuned to our 2020 NBA Conference pageFacebook page, and our upcoming Fall Newsletter for more, expanded information and eventual registration options.

Peace, Love, Straw, and Mud,

Your NBA Board

Call for proposals

We are seeking presentation and workshop proposals for the conference.  Click the link below for more information and proposal forms.  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.

Take a peak at some of the fun we had during the 2012 International Straw Bale Conference in Estes Park, Colorado.
