I hope no one was too freaked out last night – I was on red alert all day. It is fun to get a little “out there” and get in the swing of the holidays, keeping us bright as the temps drop.
What are you working on at the end of the year here? How are you contributing to net positive outcomes through the built environment?
At the USGBC MA, we are exploring what it means to make a difference. How can we help you push the envelope? How can we help you lead your firm or organization to more audacious goals?
There's a lot of momentum in our community. A lot of goodwill.
Our Emerging Professionals (EPMA) recently held a fun networking event (at Peabody Office thanks to the Behr team for a great presentation). There was some mad ping-pong and the jenga-scraper was consistently high before crashing.
The EPMA was also busy earlier this month producing a tour of the new UMass Boston: University Hall complex. An awesome new green building! Thanks to Pare Corporation for sponsoring and the whole team for guiding us and teaching us. It is awesome to spend time with our emerging pros – the up-and-coming and super energetic principals of the future!
We continue to convene a leading conversation to inspire, educate and nurture our movement.
The Healthy Materials Summit drew together over 150 people to engage on that important topic. If you didn't get to go to the Healthy Materials Summit, get the full recap here and try to go to next year's event! See pictures from this year's event here.
Pretty soon our community will come together at ABX – make sure you are registered. And register for our sessions in the “green building” track – what an amazing collection of instructors. Truly leaders in our work. If you're looking to network, join us for our Pre-Mixer with Amanda Sturgeon on Nov. 14, and the Quebec is Quality Reception Nov. 16
And if you want to help us lead, please come out and join us. The next big event is our All-In Party on 12/15 at Nitsch Engineering. This will be your opportunity to step onto the stage and work with our organizing team to host the most wicked green Greenbuild EVER!
Thanks for your support, your energy, and your commitment to transforming the built environment for net positive benefit.
