No travel, low-cost professional development. ACUHO-I presents online webinars and virtual roundtables
Webinars are like a large interactive conference call, but conducted in a more controlled environment. You will see the presentation on your computer screen, hear the audio from your telephone, and be able to engage in Q&A and chat.
You will also want to tune in for the ACUHO-I Virtual Roundtable Series. Presented for free, these virtual roundtables touch on the topics that matter the most to you and your colleagues. Along with a brief presentation on the topic by experienced and knowledgeable professionals, the session opens up to a participant Q&A where the topic is explored even further.
These events are designed to be valuable to those participating as a group or individually. With ACUHO-I, you can learn about the latest trends and issues from the comfort of your own office or conference room.

This webinar will review two innovative technologies that can improve the efficiencies of these systems. Members from the University of Washington will report on the benefits of the "Eco Thermostat" which requires students to push a button for heat to continue beyond two hours, significantly reducing the heating of non-occupied spaces. The University of Arizona will report on their use of occupancy-sensing thermostats to reduce cooling needs as well as to shut down "green outlets" in the students' rooms. Organized by ACUHO-I's Sustainability Advisory Committee, this webinar will help you save energy and money. Register here.
