    I hope this email finds you doing well and staying safe. We wanted to provide you with an update regarding our monthly Lunch & Learns and upcoming events for the North Texas Chapter of IIBEC. Due to the abrupt changes brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, we have had to go back to the drawing board for the education opportunities previously planned for the spring and summer of 2020. Given the current restrictions, similar to last month, we are canceling the April Lunch & Learn that was originally scheduled for April 27 at The Ranch. We encourage you to still use this time to earn a continuing education credit as there are many online opportunities available in the industry right now.

    One such resource is the AECDaily website which offers several free and “on-demand” webinar options. Click Here for a full list of relevant courses.

    Based on some recent polling results, several of our members expressed interest in education topics regarding roofing and technologies/innovation. One course of note within AECDaily related to these topics would be Rooftop Solar Photovoltaic Systems: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly which is good for one AIA LU/HSW, 1GBCI/LEED, or 1 IIBEC CEH. Click the title to learn more.

    In addition, we are also postponing our annual Top Golf event (usually scheduled for May) until further notice. While we hope to offer this popular networking event later in the year, we are working diligently to finalize an alternate web-based meeting for May that will offer education credit opportunities, as well as a fun hands-on opportunity from the comfort and safety of your own home!  More information to come!

    Headed into the summer, we will continue to monitor the situation and adjust our events accordingly. On behalf of myself and the entire NTC IIBEC Board, we wish the best for you and your families during these trying times, and we look forward to the day when we can all gather safely together again

    Sincerely,

    Amy Aubuchon

    2020 President - NTC IIBEC

    Due to concerns regarding the COVID-19 virus, the lunch and learn scheduled for March 16th has been canceled. For those members who pre-registered, a refund will be issued through PayPal later today.

    We apologize for any inconvenience, but the safety of our members and their families is our top priority.

    Sincerely,

    Amy Aubuchon

    Raleigh, NC—On April 1, 2019, RCI, Inc., a nonprofit association originally incorporated in 1983 as the Roof Consultants Institute (RCI), will officially become the International Institute of Building Enclosure Consultants (IIBEC; pronounced eye-bec).

    The change, approved by its membership after extensive study, brand assessment, and industrywide feedback, will align the association’s name and brand with its purpose and strategy heading into the future.

    RCI has grown from a small core of dedicated roof consultants to represent some 3600 members, comprised of building enclosure consultants and other industry stakeholders specializing in roofing, waterproofing, and exterior wall specification and design. The evolving focus of the institute’s members in embracing the entire building enclosure called for a name that would clearly define its purpose as:

    ·         An international association

    ·         A professional institute representing building enclosure consultants – architects, engineers and others such as ex-contractors who have gained the required education and experience

    ·         A knowledge hub and leading authority on all things building enclosure (roofing, waterproofing and exterior walls)

    ·         An institute attractive to professionals of all ages, races, and gender

    ·         An industry leader endeavoring to increase exposure, recognition, and usage of the institute’s resources by nonmember architects and engineers, government agencies (state and federal), as well as end-users such as school boards, universities, facility managers, etc.

    Kindly note that all correspondence, financial transactions, contracts, and references to RCI should be changed to the International Institute of Building Enclosure Consultants or IIBEC as of April 1.

    The North Texas chapter of RCI is proud to report that a total of $7,875 has been donated by the chapter and its members to various organizations involved with the Hurricane Harvey relief effort.

    The Chapter elected to donate the majority of the contributions (approximately $6,000) to the Houston Food Bank. Some of the other organizations that members contributed to were The Texas Baptist Men, American Red Cross, Catholic Charities Galveston-Houston, and the Houston Architecture Foundation.

    We want to thank each and every one of our members who participated in this effort. It has been great to see the generosity of not only our members but of so many people throughout this country and internationally supporting those in their time of need. Let’s keep up the good work North Texas Chapter.
