In case you hadn’t heard, Decon ’13 is just two weeks away! TheBuilding Materials Reuse Association (BMRA), a network of professionals in the U.S. and Canada, have chosen Seattle for this biennial conference. Attendees can listen to speakers and panelists discuss salvage, deconstruction, reuse, business tactics, policy work, historic preservation and more.

The speakers are sure to impress. The keynote speakers include Carol Sanford, author and business professional, who will speak about achieving a responsible revolution in the salvage community, and Anthony Perez, senior concept design manager at Starbucks, who will speak about creating meaningful environments. If that’s not enough, Second Use’s own Dirk Wassink will speak about the different kinds of shoppers in the salvage industry, and Seth D’Ambrosia will talk about how to make salvage a serious trade.
