Two Learning Opportunities at Sister Organizations

Annette Gorelick, our chapter’s Secretary, wants to make sure you know about two opportunities for education at some of our sister organizations.

First is a USGBC Georgia chapter educational event being held on Thursday, August 19. Attendees will be able to earn LEED AP continuing education credit and elevate their understanding about projecting, tracking, & evaluating costs & returns on green building initiatives. Greg O’Brien, Principal, Sustainable Options, LLC, will address design vs. actual performance and financial returns on sustainable investments. A walking tour to Colonial Properties Atlantic Center Plaza follows as Chief Engineer Jeff Johnson will discuss the condensate reclamation system as part of this LEED Gold property. For more information, send an e-mail to Annette Gorelick. Register directly at the USGBC-GA site.

Second, Annette encourages you to join IFMA Birmingham Chapter members as they attend the Green Building Focus Conference & Expo 8/24-8/26, 2010 in Birmingham, AL. You can register on the Green Building Focus website — please note that IFMA groups receive the Host Association rate listed on the left side. If you are interested in more details, please contact Michael McHugh at Green Building Focus.
