Get your questions answered at IBS, Part II

Are you planning to attend the International Builders Show In Las Vegas?

If you are stop by Meet The Experts on Thursday and say hello.


As I mentioned yesterday, the International Builders' Show (IBS) put on by the NAHB will be in Las Vegas starting on January 20th.

The NSMC/IRM is sponsoring the "Meet the Experts" program, consisting of 24 topics presented over 2 days with 2 topics going on concurrently at each time slot. These are done in a Q&A format with a facilitator and participants. The groups can be as small as a few people all the way up to 100, depending on the topic and other programs of interest being held at the same time.

The Wednesday schedule was published yesterday. Here is the Thursday schedule:
