If there is any advantage to the current economic recession it is that it gives us the time and opportunity to reinvest in ourselves. In today’s fast-paced business cycle, we often lack the sufficient time for training in new materials and methods. Now is the perfect time to devote to continuing education.

In 2009 ARW is providing a series of six webinars designed to educate the designer in the latest material trends and application methods that are essential to 21st century roofing and waterproofing. The webinars are provided at no cost and conducted in the convenience of your own computer. Check out www.arwmag.com for details and times of the upcoming one AIA credit webinars from ARW University.

In addition to the webinars, I will be presenting a waterproofing design seminar throughout the country beginning in April. The live (3 AIA credit) seminars are presented at no charge and attendees receive a copy of my latest book, “The Architectural Waterproofing Manual.” Contact me at john_paragon@ameritech for information on upcoming seminars in your area. I am also available to present roofing and waterproofing seminars for your firm.

2009 could be the year we all reconnect with the latest technology and materials that will lead us into the second decade of the 21st century.
