      We invite you to join us for two days of professional development. We
      are excited about what we have organized and look forward to spending
      time with you exploring the current trends and controversies in various
      natural building systems including wood, earth and straw biofibre.

      This year the entire Saturday will be workshops, round table
      discussions, and presentations on a variety of topics of interest to
      builders and potential owner-builders. The meeting of members will take
