Take on the challenge of crafting an effective case for green building.

A panel of design, construction, development and business ownership professionals will kick the evening off with a discussion on national and regional green building progress to date, regional success stories and challenges, as well as opportunities to build momentum.

Equipped with this knowledge and their own perspectives, attendees will then break into small groups to role play client/consultant scenarios encompassing a wide variety of project types.

More than a lecture, this fun, hands-on event will result in:

  • Uncovering new or innovative ideas on how to promote green building practices
  • Developing strategies for presenting relevant research data to a customer
  • Creating a “business case for green” for the customer

Beer, wine, and appetizers will be served during the shortened networking period from 5:30-6 pm.
