The PELICE conference will be held Feb. 4-6, 2010 in Atlanta, GA.

Her talk, "Impact of Green Building on Wood Adhesives" will review requirements related to the U.S. Green Building Council Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design® (LEED®) Green Building Rating System, the Green Building Initiative® Green Globes® rating system and the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) National Green Building Standard™ in the context of new and existing resin technologies in wood adhesives.
