By Celis Brisbin, Programs Manager

I’ve been a co-chair of the chapter Advocacy Committee for the past year. I work with the other co-chair, John DiModica, as well as Grey Lee to drive and direct the committee’s efforts, including setting committee agenda, organizing events and working with legislators and partner organizations. I am also the issue captain for Net Zero Energy Building Code Legislation; right now we are building partnerships with organizations and municipalities around this issue. Check out the chapter website for all the latest on Net Zero Energy Buildings.


The chapter is a great member-led organization that is really making an impact on sustainability throughout the Architecture / Engineering / Construction industry and the communities we live and work in. I feel the chapter is very successful at bringing people from all ends of the industry (architects, contractors, developers, etc.) together to advance the chapter’s mission of “more green buildings and communities” as well as supporting members through education and networking.

I am a senior associate at Arrowstreet, an architecture firm located in Boston. I focus on the design of K-12 education projects throughout Massachusetts. I also help drive sustainability efforts firm wide, including green building design, staff education and office operations. I feel fortunate to work in a creative, progressive environment.
