USGBC MA Chapter is moving full steam ahead! Lots going on. And you could be our 500th “Like” on facebook – like us right now!

Coming up:

This Monday the 8th: Residential Green Building Committee. They will be hosting a presentation about sustainable forestry and timber construction from Michael Sigmon and Jack Mackin of Chapter Sponsor Sterritt Lumber. 

Our Combined Committees Quarterly Gathering will be Thursday, September 11th and will be our official “Open House” at our new offices. All Chapter working group and committee leaders are invited to attend. This is a great opportunity to come and meet other green building activists and change agents. We will be discussing the topic “Leadership,” exploring how to succeed with our Q4 Membership Drive, and breaking out into working groups (committees etc.) to start the 2015 budgeting process. If you haven't yet come over to our new space at 50 Milk Street right in Downtown Crossing, this is a great opportunity to visit.

Don't delay in signing up for a Green Apple Day of Service opportunity.  There are a lot of projects just waiting for volunteers like you. Use this link to look up a project near you in Massachusetts – by zip code. It is going to be a lot of fun and there are projects on many dates throughout the coming weeks.

And now, for something completely different: 


And surely you are already thinking about it: Tuesday, September 30th…The LEED Project Showcase! Reach out to your colleagues now! We want their certified projects to be in our show. This is a major fundraiser for the Chapter and it's going to be an excellent time for all. If you know someone who is “on the fence” – put them in touch with Grey. Thank you to the many existing sponsors so far:
  • National Grid
  • NStar
  • Boston Properties
  • Richard Moore
  • Chapman Construction
  • Columbia Construction
  • and over a dozen project sponsors…
And more are signing up every day!

Hope you're enjoying the post-labor day “Still Summer!” weather!
