SeaBEC Research Grant

Thank you to everyone who submitted proposals for the 2020 SeaBEC Research Grant. The winner will be announced in the November 19, 2020 SeaBEC member meeting.

Students, faculty, independent researchers, individuals, and design and construction firms are invited to submit research proposals for consideration.  Proposals are due on October 29, 2020

SeaBEC Speakers

SeaBEC is always looking for technical speakers for both our monthly meetings and symposium (held every other year). If you have a technical topic, research project, or case study that you would like to share with the SeaBEC membership, please contact our Education Chair, Sharon Libby, at [email protected] for consideration. 

Speaker presentations should address technical aspects of the building envelope industry in an open discussion format and support the SeaBEC Philosphy of better building science practices through the sharing of information. SeaBEC, as a not for profit organization, has no opinion nor do we endorse, promote, or specify any products or systems. Therefore, presentations may not be product specific. 

SeaBEC Refreshment Sponsors

If you and/or your company would like to sponsor a SeaBEC member meeting, please contact our Sponsorship Chair, Joel Thornburg at [email protected] for open dates.

Monthly meeting sponsorships are $400 and help us cover the cost of meeting refreshments. Sponsors may distribute product and/or system specific literature, samples, contact information; receive a public introduction and be permitted five minutes for a "quick pitch" of their product or system.
