This is an event not to be missed.  This event will include a light breakfast, lunch and afternoon refreshments.  

John Straube is a Principal at RDH Building Science, where he heads forensic investigations and leads research projects in the areas of low-energy building design, building enclosure performance, hygrothermal analysis, and field monitoring of wall assemblies. He is also a prolific writer and a noted public speaker. As one blogger wrote after attending a keynote speech: “he clearly loves what he does.”
