For those interested in sustainability with a specific focus on green building, getting LEED certified is the way to go. The best place to start is with the LEED GA (Green Associate) exam.  This exam is a two-hour, computer-based test covering the essentials of green design, construction, and operations. Individuals in a variety of occupations–from real estate to planning to education and beyond–take the exam every year to grow their knowledge and boost their careers. If you're thinking about going for your LEED GA, we at the USGBC MA Chapter are here to help. Our next LEED GA study group kicks off at 281 Summer Street, 5th Floor, Boston, MA 02210, on Thursday, April 4th from 5:45 PM – 7:30 PM.  We will meet for the following five Thursdays at the same time and place. The best part is that each session with be led by a seasoned green building professional such as Erik Ruoff or Tom Hardey. Here's the agenda for each meeting:


  • 4/4: USGBC Programs: General LEED GA knowledge, GBCI, Rating Systems
  • 4/11: Sustainable Sites and Water Efficiency
  • 4/18: Energy and Atmosphere and Indoor Environmental Quality
  • 4/25: Materials and Resources, Innovation in Design, Regional Priority, & upcoming LEED v4
  • 5/2: Green Building Jeopardy
  • 5/9: Wrap-up and Green Associate Exam Prep

Hope to see you at the next meeting!
