Weekly Bulletin to 6/6/14

Next week is a triple-header for us - a lot of great opportunities to connect as a community of green building practitioners.

One of the great things about the USGBC is that we are on a mission. Many professional societies and trade associations are committed to excellence in achievement and the growth of their industries. So are we. However, we take it to the next level with our commitment to our mission. We want green buildings for all within a generation. This is what brings us together. Working together, across the spectrum of real estate-related professions, we can help change the market, change the built environment, improve our communities & society and maybe, we'll even "save the world!"

Thanks for being a part of our work.

Come on out next Monday, 6/9/13 to hear about how LEED for Homes will change as LEEDv4 comes into play. The Residential Green Building Committee will meet from 5:45-8pm at 281 Summer St. Will D'Arrigo of Conservation Services Group will present.

Tuesday, 6/10/14, we'll have our Networking Night in Boston. This will be a special presentation from Juliette Bowker of Perkins+Will to hear about their Transparency Tool.

And if you still haven't had enough of the green building mojo, come on out with EPMA to attend our green building tour of the East Boston Branch Library on Thursday evening, 6/12/14. This will be a great chance to meet members of the project team and go behind the scenes in a great new public facility. And when was the last time you made it to East Boston?

See you soon!

And, because pictures are great to add to a blog entry:

How many green buildings can you see in this picture?

How many green buildings here now?

Here we have some folks at the Quarterly Combined Committees Gathering on Tuesday, brainstorming about membership and how to grow our organization - thanks to all who came out to work together on improving our Chapter! Did I mention we moved up the membership rankings from #40 to #17 out of the 75 USGBC Chapters from 2012 to 2013. Let's see where we go this year!
