Greenbuild is in Washington DC this year from November 18-20th.
Will you be attending? Let us know. We want to see you there. We want to gather. We want to learn, network, and have a great time. Seriously, let us know so we can invite you to the New England Reception we are organizing at some point during the week. We are also organizing accomodation and potentially transportation sharing. Some have discussed biking there…
Register here and then let us know you are going!
We have some of our colleagues already planning on attending and presenting even! Take a look at these and the many other courses offered during Greenbuild. It is a wonderful way to take a deep dive into the design, science, sociology, and economics of green buildings. The educational sessions can help with your credential maintenance and help make important connections & insights.
- Our Chapter's Board Chair, Jim Newman of Linnean Solutions is in a duo presenting on Climate Ready Multifamily Buildings – Resilient Communities – an important topic for us all to consider.
- Chapter volunteer all-star Craig Foley will be presenting Make it Matter! How to Sell When “Green” Doesn't Mean “Go”
- Chapter Board member Barbra Batshalom of the Sustainable Performance Institute will be presenting: Getting to 2030: Institutionalizing sustainability firm-wide
- Chapter member Darien Crimmin of WinnDevelopment is on a panel for When the Market Drives Neighborhood Change
- Chapter Member Janelle Chan of Asian Community Development Corporation is part of a panel presenting New Approaches to Equitable Community Development
- Ian Finlayson of the Massachusetts Dept. of Energy & Resources (DOER) and Kevin Rose of Northeast Energy Efficiency Partnership (NEEP) are presenting on Commercial Asset Rating – New Methods for Driving Investment
And of course there are more to explore – take a look at the session catalogue and schedule here.
Definitely stop by Chapter Sponsor Excel Dryer's booth where they will be exhibiting on the trade show floor!
In case not even all this makes you interested in this event, the main show on the Thursday night is “Fitz and the Tantrums” – apparently a very successful band that all the kids are talking about – which I have never, ever, heard of before. At least they had no trouble getting the domain name. PS: they don't have a guitarist…
Well, we'll be sure to have a great time one way or another! See you there!
