A Story of New Opportunities at USGBC MA

To Our Community in Green Building:

The US Green Building Council, MA Chapter, would like to announce our search for a new Executive Director.

Our current Executive Director, Grey Lee, has chosen to take an opportunity to pursue a mid-career Master’s in Public Administration at the Harvard Kennedy School. We are saddened to lose his leadership at the Chapter but know he will use this opportunity to step up to a new level of leadership, advocacy, and activism that will benefit us all. He is devoted to the transformation of real estate toward sustainability and our efforts for #MoreGreenBuildings!

Please join us in wishing Grey great success as he begins this new phase.


With Change Comes Energy

We are guided by our mission to “drive sustainable and regenerative design, construction, and operation of the built environment.” Our vision for “a thriving and diverse community, creating a built environment of net positive systems of water and energy, of financial and social equity, and of ecological and human health” compels us to action.

We convene a diverse community of practitioners working across industry sectors and at all levels of expertise. We work to advance the opportunities of our members and to maximize the positive impacts of our practices. Since our founding in 2009, and especially in the last three years, we have grown our Chapter and developed into the voice for the dynamic green building industry of our region. We continue to bring more and more people into the green building space and to galvanize our community for action. And this November, we plan to host the greatest Greenbuild conference ever, right here in Boston.

Today we launch our search for our next Executive Director. We seek an entrepreneurial and passionate professional to continue our momentum, to advance our net positive focus, and to lead the green building movement in Massachusetts. Please visit our Executive Director posting for additional information on the position and application process at:


Celis Brisbin, Director of Operations, to assist with the transition and fill in as Acting Director.

The Staff share the Board’s excitement and are committed to working with Grey over the coming months, and the new Executive Director upon hiring, to ensure our momentum continues to build as we advance our mission and vision and accelerate toward Greenbuild.

The Board of Directors, our members and partners, and all of our stakeholders take great pride in our accomplishments and ongoing growth. Our #1 ranking for LEED Certifications in 2016 is a reflection of the strength and commitment of our community and our collective efforts.

We look forward to a new phase in our journey and new leadership, new energy, and new successes. If you have questions or concerns, or you would like to share feedback, please send us a note at


Thank you for your continued support as we move forward,

Andrea Love,

on behalf of the Board of Directors,

USGBC MA Chapter, Inc.
