INTERAGENCY FORUM on CLIMATE CHANGE IMPACTS and ADAPTATIONS
Special Training Session: Climate Adaptation & Infrastructure Engineering

As the Nation moves to renew and replace its aging infrastructure, there is an urgent and critical need to integrate climate change information into infrastructure engineering practice to better withstand the damaging effects of a changing climate. This special training session frames and organizes information so that engineers, architects, planners, and program and project managers may begin integrating climate change information into infrastructure design and management.

Join us as we explore answers to questions such as:
- How can I communicate effectively with infrastructure designers about the need to address climate change impacts?
- Where is the best place to insert climate considerations into our long design and procurement processes?
- Where can I get trusted climate projection data to use in vulnerability assessments or the design process?

The training will be interactive, with audience/panel discussions and small group discussions. Attendance in person is recommended, especially for those in the DC area. Web conferencing will be available for those who are unable to attend in person, but please note that the telephone line will be in Broadcast Only mode.

GLOBALCON 2015: Conference & Expo

Decision makers from business, industry and government must now seek integrated energy solutions — solutions which assure both a secure and affordable energy supply to meet today's and tomorrow's needs, and effective management of energy and overall operational costs. GLOBALCON 2015, presented by the Association of Energy Engineers, is designed specifically to facilitate those seeking to expand their knowledge of fast-moving developments in the energy field, explore promising new technologies, compare energy supply options, and learn about innovative and cost-conscious project implementation strategies.

The multi-track conference covers a broad range of currently relevant topics, and gives you the opportunity to hear first-hand from some of the major players in the energy field. The GLOBALCON Expo will emphasize four critical areas of leading edge technology and related services:

*Energy Management, HVAC and Smart Building Systems

*Renewables, Alternative Energy and Onsite Generation

*Lighting Efficiency and Integrated Energy Solutions

*Plant and Facilities Management
