Ventilation is an area of technical consideration that still needs a lot more development because of how much it impacts roofing performance, and the knowledge gaps surrounding it, with H1 changes . 

To compare and contrast approaches, we'll have a 'fireside chat' with roofing training experts in Australia, and our RANZ Executive & NZ roofing training duo, Mark Bishop & Paul Stanley-Boden.

The RANZ AGM will be held before the second break, giving delegates the chance to hear from the RANZ Executive and updates on plans for the year ahead.
