Colorado Volunteer Day

AIBD Certified Member Dennis Berry hard at work.

The AIBD Colorado Society Fall Conference is this week – September 26-28. Starting a new tradition the Colorado Society will begin it’s conference with volunteer work at a local Habitat for Humanity. Last Spring, the Colorado Society kicked off the Spring Conference with work at an apartment building project for Habitat for Humanity Metro Denver. Their day of work included installing fire treated enclosures between apartment units and sealing floor, wall and ceiling joints. This Fall’s project for the Pikes Peak Habitat for Humanity has yet to be determined but volunteers on behalf of the AIBD Colorado Society has become so popular that we have to turn down volunteers due to the limited space Habitat of Humanity has available. The MondayMINUTE has been promised an update on how the event went along with the Fall Conference in an upcoming announcement.
