Last Thursday, we held a Greenbuild 2017 themed networking night at Shawmut in Boston. 100 Chapter members and green building enthusiasts filled this gorgeous meeting space for a night of food & drinks, fun times, and Greenbuild preview events that were released to the public for the first time. We love holding events like this. Our community rocks, and it never gets old seeing our community convene at great locations like this all in support of green building!
Grey Lee took the stage to introduce the night to come. The ever-charismatic Executive Director of the Chapter made sure the front of the room was packed and eager to learn more about the state of Greenbuild 2017. From there, we were honored to have the VP of New England Shawmut Kevin Sullivan stop by to say how stoked they are to be involved in our Chapter and Greenbuild – we need to see more firms this excited!
Judy Nitsch of Nitsch Engineering took the stage to give an update on everything going on with Greenbuild committees this year. Tours, Legacy Projects, Greening Greenbuild, and Student Volunteer groups are all moving forward to make this the best Greenbuild yet.
To wrap the talks up, Emily and Alex of the USGBC MA gave the first-ever, behind-the-scenes updates of Greenbuild 2017. We can't share any details just yet since this was an event-only surprise, but you'll be able to hear about it soon. Be sure to attend our next events to get the news before anyone else!
Special thanks to Nathan at Shawmut, not just for helping us so much with planning this amazing event out, but for taking our community on a tour of Shawmut's Boston HQ. This building is gorgeous and innovative, and everyone followed along with their eyes wide open.
We look forward to seeing you at our next gathering!
