Utah Building Industry Conference
The Utah Building Industry Conference was held on Nov 4th at the Dixie Center in St. George Utah. This unique conference brought contractors and building industry professionals from all over Utah together under one roof. The conference educated on rules and regulations, ways to market and promote business, learning of new technologies in the industry, as well as safety and promotion of positive working environments. This conference provided valuable and necessary continuing education credits required for contractor license renewal.
This yearly conference has become a favorite amongst builders in Utah. It not only provides the much-needed credits, but it also creates a perfect environment for those in the industry to network. Besides the key note speakers there were a series of workshops. This allowed the attendees to earn their continuing education credits in workshops that were pertinent and interesting to them.
Wilding Wallbeds was proud to have their director of business development, Mr. Jeremy Andra present at one of these workshops. Mr. Andra also serves on multiple committees in a voluntary capacity with Southern Utah Home Builders.
Mr. Andra’s presentation fell under the safety track workshops and was titled:
