For the past 17 years, Joe Lstiburek and Betsy Pettit have hosted an annual conference, the Westford Symposium on Building Science, near their home in Massachusetts.

The attendees listen to presentations at a conference center during the day and relax in Joe and Betsy’s backyard during the evening.
