NEO Green Building Akron-Canton Extension Launch

The Northeast Ohio Chapter of the USGBC has had plans to increase our outreach in Stark, Summit, Portage, Medina, Ashland and Wayne counties. We've assembled a diverse team of built environment professionals at meetings in January and February to initiate the formation of what we're calling the Akron-Canton Extension. The team has generated a regional distribution list of nearly 600 people, began making connections to trade associations in those counties that we might collaborate with and develop some programming for the region.If you're a LEED AP, involved in green design / construction / operations, a green building advocate,or a college student in a related course of study, then we encourage you to join us for this "launch" meeting. We will discuss some of the regional green building highlights, confirmed programs being facilitated in June and July, committee initiatives and how you can engage with the Akron-Canton Extension.We want to learn what green building projects you're working on. We want to know how we canincrease the A-C Network. We want to develop programming to meet your needs.There is no cost to attend this event. Cash bar. Registration strongly encouraged, so we canadequately staff the bar and make you a nametag.
