When adding a single "tikzpicture" node to the main document using this template, the following error occurs when compiling with pdflatex:

TeX capacity exceeded, sorry [grouping levels=255].

The main file is the following:

    I would say that you either need to wrap any tikzpicture by a block, e.g.,

    \block{Block Title}{your tikzpicture code}
    

    Or you remove the tikzpicture environment. You don't need to remember anything, as the poster is one big tikzpicture. That is:

    \begin{document} 
    \maketitle
    
        \draw (current page.north east) node (__cp_seal)
            [
                anchor=north east,
                opacity=0.125,
            ]
        {\includegraphics[width=0.25\paperwidth]{images/calpoly-seal.png}};
    
    \end{document}
