2017 ICB Conference and Tradeshow

The 16th Annual ICB conference will begin on Monday May 1, 2017 at 8 a.m. and conclude on Friday, May 5, 2017 at 5 p.m. in St. Charles, Missouri.

This year’s joint labor and management event will offer numerous classes, workshops and seminars on a variety of current topics geared toward working professionals, with a focus on codes, standards and certification requirements that control our industry. For the first time, all classes, workshops and seminars will be open to all attendees from both labor and management.

ICB through NEMIC will provide certification testing for supervisors, technicians, and contractors who qualify. In today’s marketplace, being “certified” is very desirable. The ICB certification is a statement that ICB-certified technicians, supervisors
, and contractors are competent, reliable, and qualified professionals. Through certification, ICB and NEMIC aim to increase employment and business opportunities.

Historic St. Charles, Missouri, our host city in the “Show-Me State,” is a short 30-minute drive from St. Louis. Founded in 1769 on the Missouri River, it served as the departure point for the famed Lewis and Clark expedition in 1804.
