Designing and Building Quality Masonry Structures 
Steve Bolognese, Director of Industry Development and Technical Services
International Masonry Institute     
This presentation will focus on all aspects of the complete masonry cavity wall system including veneer, the cavity, flashing and weeps, insulation and concrete masonry units. The program will show how all these parts work together to provide an energy efficient wall system that will be durable and cost efficient as well as quality masonry structures.

Designing and Detailing with Rain Screen Walls
Keith Lashway, Director of Industry Development and Technical Services
International Masonry Institute
Among the most popular building enclosure choices are rain screen walls and systems.  This program investigates the building science and evolution of wall theory from mass walls to drainage and cavity walls finally to both pressurized and non-pressurized rain screen systems.  The attendee then learns specific details of common terra cotta, porcelain and composite panel systems operating as a rain screen. 

Behind the Brick – Critical Interfaces in a Masonry Wall
Jeremy Douglas, CSI, CCPR 
Hohmann & Barnard, Inc.
This course demonstrates the synergies between various components required in masonry construction today by detailing their interfaces. Topics will include masonry anchors, flashings, and air barriers.
