Construction Cafe

The Construction Café is a roundtable discussion component of the program where attendees will participate in valuable dialogue with their peers. Participants will engage in up to 3 fast-paced, 20-minute discussions and choose from over 10 different topics.

How will this work?

Each participant will receive a list of 10 different questions, topics, and/or issues. Each topic will correspond to a numbered table in the ballroom. Participants join the table/topic of their choosing and spend the next 20 minutes discussing that topic with their peers. The goal is that in 20 minutes each group will share tools, ideas, and have a stimulating conversation about a particular topic. That will happen two more times. By the end of the entire session, each participant will have spent 20 minutes with 3 different topics/issues/questions.

Why are we doing this?

The Construction Café allows CEBA conference attendees the chance to share and discuss relevant topics important to them. Everyone will be sure to learn something new and carry on the discussion throughout the conference.

Who will facilitate the discussions?

We have chosen a group of your peers to facilitate the discussions. As a table facilitator, their role will be to keep the conversation flowing. They will start the conversation, possibly lead it, direct it, guide it, encourage it, but not talk the entire time (this isn’t a presentation).
