As a leading design firm in our region, we are pleased to invite you to our 2019 Knowledge is Powers Education Series. In addition to offering a diverse range of engaging AIA/CES approved 1-hour presentations, this year we have added a series of 20-minute Powers TECH TALKS to our offering. Each of these TECH TALKS will concisely focus on one technical topic over 20 minutes of food and discussion. We are also offering a Powers Products Overview of our manufacturers and services, as well as product details on a specific manufacturer of your choice.

All of these presentations will qualify you for our REWARDS program (see pg. 2 for details). With $8,000 in prizes awarded over the last 5 years… it’s one more great reason to invite us in! Following is a list of our 2019 Knowledge is Powers offering:
