Events and EDUCATION
BILD hosts numerous industry events and educational seminars to appeal to all sectors of the membership.
Throughout the year, member-led committees plan and organize a range of educational and fundraising events. To see what’s coming up, see our calendar of upcoming events.
All BILD fundraising events support our community partner, Habitat for Humanity GTA. They include large annual industry get-togethers such as our summer Charity BBQ and the Party for Humanity, as well as fun social activities like baseball, volleyball and golf tournaments.
Our educational programming is designed to be timely and to suit members’ needs. We hold regular member-only forums that are free of charge. They feature diverse panels of member experts who address such topics as the latest marketing innovations, improving building performance, how to build affordable housing and ways to enhance customer service.
We offer Ontario Building Code training courses and Standard First Aid Training twice per year and partners with other organizations such as EnerQuality Corporation to offer members additional educational programs.
Our Young BILDers Committee, yBILD for short, helps us engage the next generation of industry leaders. Geared to members under 40 years old, yBILD programming focuses on networking as well as education.
