Benner Award


The Benner Award Committee is accepting nominations for the Benner Award, a prize for excellence in efforts to make commissioning business as usual. The committee seeks nominations of individuals and programs/organizations that have engaged in educational, demonstration, policy, or actual commissioning activities that successfully promote building commissioning. Nominations in those two categories will be accepted and will be judged separately. Resubmission of previous nominees is encouraged.

Benner Award recipients are selected by a committee of national experts on building commissioning from both the public and private sector. The committee may award multiple or no awards in each category.

Pre-Conference – Monday, May 18


8:30AM – 2:30PM


BCA Scholarship Foundation Annual Golf Tournament


BCA Scholarship Foundation Golf Tournament will take place in conjunction with NCBC at the Gateway National Golf Links in Madison, IL. Gateway National offers St. Louis golfers the rare opportunity to return to the rich traditions of the game. Rolling links, separated by gentle mounds, meander through lush, green pasturelands. Tall grasses, lakes, wood-tie bunkers, and occasional giant cottonwoods complete the landscape. In view of the magnificent Gateway Arch, you will cross occasional stone bridges, glide on raised boardwalks through quiet wetlands, and enjoy play on the only public course with bentgrass fairways within hundreds of miles.

The tournament format will be the same as last year: a traditional scramble with shotgun start at 8:30AM. Along with the usual prizes for Lowest Team Score, Highest Team Score, KP (Men’s and Women’s) and Longest Drive (Men’s and Women’s), there will be some creative and fun wrinkles on advancing the ball in certain situations, and a one-time opportunity to get creative with scorekeeping.

The emphasis will be on FUN in supporting the purpose of the tournament – raising money for the BCA Scholarship Foundation. Please join us for a lively event in a magnificent setting for this worthwhile cause.

$100 Per Person (includes lunch)
