14 October 2017:
The whole day will be filled with presentations by guest speakers. The focus is on R&D, seismic design, good detailing for durability, the building consent process as well as repair and maintenance strategies for natural buildings. There will also be an update on the revision of our world renowned Earth Building Standards, including the opportunity to discuss the exciting inclusion of new sections.

15 October 2017:
After breakfast we will head out on house tour until mid afternoon, visiting two straw buildings that have fared well in the recent earthquake and stopping for lunch at Fyffe Country Lodge, an impressive rammed earth block building that is currently undergoing repairs. There will be practical demonstrations of materials testing and repair strategies on site.

Upon our return we hold our AGM and then catch up on happenings from around the country in the always popular show-and-tell.
