An initial kick-off meeting was held last October at the Ironworkers Local 155 in Fresno to create the Southern California Chapter of MBCEA. In February, we then held our second meeting in Visalia, CA (Butler’s office) to generate additional interest in the Chapter. Approximately 25 people were in attendance who sat in on excellent presentations by Silvercote (Building Codes related to Insulation Energy Values), IAS (their interaction with MBCEA and AC478 accreditation) and of course an excellent explanation on AC478 by Gary Smith. During this meeting a board was selected to continue the development of the Chapter.
Currently, we are working on establishing a late Summer – early Fall meeting or event.
