NCARB's First CE Seminar Premiers in Chicago on 17 June 2009

Washington, DC—The green design movement is transforming the profession like nothing else experienced in the lifetime of most architects. Ironically, many of the things that make buildings green also make them susceptible to future failure. Architects can learn how to avoid catastrophic mold and moisture problems in green buildings and earn three AIA-approved health, safety, and welfare (HSW) and sustainable design (SD) continuing education credits at the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards’ (NCARB) first continuing education seminar, “The Hidden Risks of Green Buildings,” in Chicago on 17 June 2009.

The seminar will address the specific high-risk components of green buildings, offer practical solutions to avoiding these problems, and identify tools and techniques to reduce the risks of innovative designs.

Presenters J. David Odom, ASHRAE, and Richard Scott, AIA, NCARB, LEED AP, co-wrote NCARB’s Mold and Moisture Prevention monograph and “The Hidden Risks of Green Buildings” mini-monograph with George H. DuBose, CGC. The seminar updates and expands on the mini-monograph, which is available for download here. For more information about the seminar and a link to an interview with the presenters, go to

Seating is limited. Register by 16 May 2009 to receive an early-bird discount.
