About the Home Performance Council
HBA’s Home Performance Council is comprised of members dedicated to the principles of cutting edge sustainable building practices. The Home Performance Council meets regularly to discuss technology improvements and ways to market sustainable building to the public and to foster sustainable building knowledge, education and application.
The BuildRight Conference is a dynamic event that places attendees and exhibitors/sponsors at the epicenter of housing evolution. I was so excited to be an exhibitor because our cabinets are made from recycled materials with a water-based non-off gasing finish that is right at the forefront of using sustainable materials in high-performance housing. The BuildRight Conference puts builders and remodelers on the path to building with high-performance techniques and standards. And, they discover that it does not need to add cost to their business model. Being a part of BuildRight adds to our value-differential and gives another reason why folks should choose our cabinets based on all the competitive alternatives. Each BuildRight attendee is a potential customer that we can solicit directly at the event making the dollars spent on our booth so very effective—my biggest reason for excitement around participating.
I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the presentations and the skills of the presenters. It is hard to find relevance when you have attended numerous gatherings like this, but relevance was present in abundance. I will be back next year, no question about it.
I thought that relative to the other conferences this year’s BuildRight had a better flow and much easier opportunities to meet and talk to vendors. That all is of course, the side benefit to the Conference. The real value to me and main benefit was the organization and variety of the classes. I was able to attend several very worthwhile meetings that had good interaction between the presenters and the audience as well as between audience members. I believe I learned more from this format than in prior years and was able to attend more classes that appealed to me. In particular, I found it very convenient to have the vendors close to the classrooms, so no time was wasted getting to their booths.”
All topics are pertinent to the appraisal business and the teachers could not be any better. I highly recommend this seminar to other appraisers and anyone in the construction industry.
