SealPact opportunity for Building Officials

Thank you again for the opportunity to present to CBOA this morning. Feel free to read more about SealPact at www.sealpact.com. We also appreciate any assistance in having as many users as possible sign up for the extended free trial (takes 5 minutes) at https://app.sealpact.com/signup. Hopefully your organization agrees that it’s better for our entire AEC ecosystem with people dynamically (or at minimum, digitally) signing and sealing documents.
