Pacific Building Trade Expo Seminars Subcommittee
Share |

This subcommittee aims to develop and facilitate seminars presented at the Annual AIA/CSI Pacific Building Trade Expo (PBT EXPO). The subcommittee is technically an event planning committee with a focus on continuing education, and operates under the main PBT EXPO Committee.  Expo seminars provide free-of-charge CEU’s to attendees at the Expo.  The inclusion of presenters specializing in subject matter congruent with architectural-based continuing education increases overall event attendance and value to the members of AIA Honolulu. The committee develops approximately 20 seminars and assists with facilitating 4 additional seminars provided by select exhibitors, for a total of 24 highly-developed CEU seminars each year.
