Call for Presenters Information

The 2021 Energy Design Conference and Expo will be a virtual event the week of February 22-26, 2021.

We are seeking quality, innovative sessions that meet the professional development needs of builders, contractors, architects, designers, code officials, educators, raters, and weatherization professionals, as well as sessions that provide useful information to students and homeowners.

A virtual platform allows us to be creative in selecting content this year and expand our audience reach. We are requesting proposals for various lengths including 90 minutes, 60 minutes, 30 minutes, and 15 minutes. The conference will include a mixture of live and pre-recorded sessions.
