NBU Roundtables & Sustainability

Roundtables vary in format and are hosted by NBA staff.  In the roundtable discussion, a topic may be presented in an educational format with a slide show or a panel discussion with multiple speakers set in a roundtable format, which provides an open discussion of the topic with all sharing experiences, solutions, and ideas.  The goal is to broaden the knowledge base through open exchange of experience and ideas.

Consultant, vendor and In-house staff hosted sustainability presentations cover current trends, innovations and office standards in sustainable design.  Like the roundtables, these lunchtime meetings consist of presentations, panel discussions and open roundtable conversations.
