Last night was incredibly productive! We held our monthly USGBC MA Board meeting where we defined more goals for the remainder of 2016, and prepare for an exciting 2017. Before we start planning for next year, we have a few more big gatherings coming up soon this year.
Actually, few is an understatement. We have a lot going on in the near future. Here's what you can expect:
The Northeast's largest building industry expo is coming up next week, November 15th-17th!
We're sponsoring multiple panels, so please come attend these informative, innovative meetings. Join your peers to become stronger leaders in the industry.
We are collaborating with the Quebec Government to host a reception on the Wednesday evening 11/16, 6-7:30pm at the BCEC, to show off the winners of our recent Green Building Showcase. It will be a great gathering to see some awesome projects and to enjoy the best provisions and victuals from our neighbors of the Nord!
We invite you to join Amanda Sturgeon and ILFI's Boston Collaborative for drinks and appetizers at our pre-ABX reception at Skanska in the Seaport on Monday night, 11/14. Learn more and register here.
