The American Wood Council (AWC) is the industry’s signature program to ensure the safe and efficient manufacture and use of wood products through the development of codes, standards and regulations, design tools, and guidelines for wood construction. AWC has a proven track record of engaging U.S. building and fire officials, as well as building designers, in understanding the structural and fire performance of the industry’s products. In the face of stiff competition and a highly-regulated construction industry, in both residential and non-residential markets, AWC’s staff experts work to maintain and expand market opportunities for wood. AWC’s Robert Glowinski will provide an overview of how AWC engages the building and design community to ensure that wood is allowed its greatest appropriate use in the many codes and regulations controlling design and construction of buildings.
