How to Communicate the Value of Attending High-Performance Buildings and Workplaces to Your Boss
We understand that training and conferences budgets have been cut back at many organizations. Here are several tips to help you validate your request to attend High-Performance Buildings and Workplaces:
Focus on what you will specifically bring back to the facility as return on investment.
Offer to prepare and deliver a short presentation to your staff in order to share what you have learned so that others may benefit from your attendance.
Share the presentation materials with your colleagues.
Have a plan for who will cover your workload while you are attending the conference.
Offer to share a room with a colleague to reduce hotel costs.
Consider driving to the event, if within a reasonable distance, to save on airfare.
High-Performance Buildings and Workplaces has the training and networking opportunities you need to succeed, but you have to attend to take advantage of them. To help get you to the conference, we have written a proposal letter that you can customize to justify your time away from the office.
1) Add the workshop Evaluating Building Water Use Efficiency and Future Costs to your itinerary.
2) Become an NFMT Member. Your 12-month membership includes benefits before,during and after HPB+W. Plus receive a discount on pre-conference workshop Evaluating Building Water Use Efficiency and Future Costs
