After a thorough deliberation by our Education Committee and Board of Directors, PENNBOC has decided to cancel our face-to-face conferenceand trade show originally planned for September 2020 in State College, PA. We believe that given the current environment and limitations on gatherings, it was the most prudent course of action to take.
We value your safety as well as the safety of the conference instructors and vendors who support our organization. The decision was a difficult one and we will miss the opportunity to network and socialize with our colleagues in the building codes industry.
However, we are equally committed to ensuring you have access to relevant & affordable educational opportunities. In lieu of a face-to-face conference, PENNBOC will be running a “virtual conference” for members. These remote trainings with live instructors will enable you to earn between three and 36 continuing education credits, depending on your desire.
Additional details will be forthcoming shortly, but our plan is to offer a-la-carte training days on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month during September, October, November, and December 2020 that you can attend from the comfort of your home or office.
Some of the currently planned virtual courses include:
- Solving Means of Egress
- Intro to Sprinkler Systems
- Electrical Systems
- Wall Bracing
- Elevators & Building Codes
- Hazmat Awareness
- Warrants & Entry Issues
- Courtroom Preparation
Keep an eye on your email for registration info (which should be coming shortly).
PENNBOC is hopeful to return to our face-to-face conference format in 2021. The Education Committee is already at work on the event. Tentatively, it is scheduled for October 20-22, 2021 at the Crowne Plaza, Reading, PA.
