Speakers – NCBC 2017


NCBC 2017 | October 16-18, 2017 | Salt Lake City, UT


The National Conference on Building Commissioning is designed for a broad audience of new entrants, seasoned commissioning professionals, and stakeholders associated with commissioning in the built environment.

If you have a passion for teaching and improving the practice of commissioning commercial buildings for top performance, then we want to hear from you!

This year we focus on the commissioning value proposition, past present and future. As you consider your topic, think in terms of lessons learned, the best practices and challenges of today’s commissioning services, and/or forthcoming policies and your strategic vision for the future of your profession.

The deadline for submitting proposals is Tuesday, February 28, 2017 at 5:00 pm pt. All proposals must be submitted using the online form. Upon submitting a proposal, you will receive a confirmation for your records. Each session proposal will be reviewed by a team of volunteers and staff and you will be notified by April 14, 2017 of the status of your submission.

Proposals will be reviewed based on the following criteria:

  • Is the abstract well-organized and designed to meet the needs of this particular audience?
  • Has the speaker received positive ratings in the past?
  • Has the speaker provided direction on the level of education (Introductory-Beginner, Applied-Intermediate, Strategic-Advanced)?
  • Does it present any new ideas?
