Around 100 green building professionals gathered Thursday, August 10, to mix, mingle and get updates on the Road to Greenbuild. Guests networked while enjoying food, drink and a lovely view of Atlantic Wharf. USGBC MA was proud to host this event in partnership with Boston Properties.
There were brief remarks from Celis Brisbin, Executive Director of USGBC MA, thanking attendees for coming to the event and for helping forward the mission of USGBC MA through their professional and personal dedication to green building. Emily Kingston, Corporate Relations Manager for USGBC MA, gave a presentation highlighting updates on the road to Greenbuild, including the July 25 Cultivation Luncheon, the legacy project bringing education for green building maintenance to Madison Park Technical Vocational High School, and other updates from the Greenbuild committees. After thanking attendees and Greenbuild Committee volunteers, Ben Myers, Sustainability Manager at Boston Properties, commented on the positivity among green building professionals and the importance of working together to promote green building in Massachusetts.
It was clear that all of the attendees are excited for Greenbuild – now less than 90 days away! USGBC MA hopes to keep that excitement growing through the coming months, so stay tuned for upcoming events and announcements on the road to Greenbuild!
Thank you to Boston Properties for hosting this event!
