National Weatherization Training Conference

Posted by Jim Gunshinan on July 21, 2009
There are 3,200 people here for the conference in Indianapolis! This is more than twice as many as the last time. Heard from Gil Sperling and others at opening plenary. Some buzz about Davis-Bacon prevailing wage legislation. Dept. of Labor created a new category "weatherization worker" and is polling organizations around the country to come up with prevailing wage numbers. Dept. of Labor staff are here to get feedback.

Five U.S. Territories are now part of the Weatherization network.

Van Jones speaking at lunch today.

Will set up display for later today. Something like 94 exhibitors are here, including heavy hitters like Home Depot and Sears. Will try to convince Home Depot folks to carry Home Energy in stores.

More later...
