Registration is now open for ACG's 9th Annual Conference on Total Building Commissioning. The theme for the conference, scheduled for April 16-19 at the InterContinental Chicago O’Hare, is “Maximizing Cx & Energy Management Opportunities.” 

The general session on Thursday, April 18, includes case studies of commissioning projects, a discussion of how the commissioning process is being integrated into building codes, a session on developing detailed energy conservation measures, and advice on the commissioning business. 

The CxA Workshop & Certification Exam will be held Wednesday, April 17, and will feature a discussion of the commissioning process in addition to serving as final preparation for the certification exam. 

The Energy Management Process Seminar & Exam is scheduled for April 16- 17. The intensive 1-1/2 day seminar will help candidates understand the commissioning-based energy management process in the ACG Energy Management Guideline and how it can be applied while serving as a final step for the Energy Management Professional (EMP) exam. 

The conference will conclude on Friday, April 19, with two half-day seminars targeted at new business opportunities for commissioning firms. One seminar will show participants how to make a business case for an energy management project, and another will be led by experts in the rapidly growing area of building enclosure commissioning.
