Thanks for updating this thread Barry.

I have been subscribed to AWC for their updates and webinars for years. Good stuff.

I believe the 2015 version will be released in May (?). One of the changes will be the Span Tables for Southern Pine as the allowable distances have been reduced and thus will be more restrictive. Youse guys in areas (primarily East and Central) that depend on that species really need to stay up to date on the changes as I almost guarantee you many of your local builders won’t acknowledge the changes until caught in a violation.

You may consider being proactive and once the changes are official, print out a few “Tech Bulletins” from your company and have them ready as “Just an FYI” handouts for these builders and deck builder companies. They may not “Thank You” outright, but they may make the changes since now they know that others know. This could help avoid those nasty confrontations that only Barry enjoys! :wink:

In addition to Barry’s post about upcoming Webinars, here are a few links for AWC self-directed education from a recent email that I received…
