One of our biggest events of the year is coming up quick!
February 2017 Monthly Newsletter

Although "generally victorious" can be something of a punk attitude, I am actually feeling pretty good since the recent USGBC rankings were announced. Lots of great stories behind the numbers, throughout the country. 

Congratulations to our colleagues who have worked so hard over the course of the past year to attain certifications of their green building projects. I'm sure we'll see you and raise our glasses at our Green Building Showcase later this year.

Our community of practitioners gathered last week fo our Annual General Meeting. What a fine crew! So many good people who are working to advance our mission every day. Lots of new faces as well - great to see. We must congratulate our Volunteers of the Year, and new Board members. There are many ways to be involved with our work. Have you played ENGAGE yet? 

I look forward to our next encounter: perhaps at the Building Tech Forum? See below!

Thank you,

Building Tech Forum 2017
