USGBC Georgia Chapter Residential Green Event
Last night marked the innagural networking event of the Residential Green Committee of the USGBC’s Georgia Chapter. We met up at Ri Ra Irish Pub in Midtown and probably had about 50 people in attendance. This was my first chance to meet Leesa Carter, the new Executive Director of the USGBC Georgia Chapter. I was excited to learn from her about the LEED Green Associate course that is available. You can find out more online HERE. Be sure and check out the website and look out for upcoming events at www.USBGCGA.org.
We also have a Speaker Series starting in September so please save the date and plan to attend.
The Myth about Modular presented by Mark Jupiter of New World Home www.NewWorldHome.com.
When: Wednesday, September 23 6-8pm
Location: LEED Platinum Model Home at 1452 Murdock Road, Marietta, GA 30062
Mark Jupiter will give a tour of the home and explain the construction process of a Modular Home and show us the benefits of living in a home like this. I have been on the tour twice and you do not want to miss it. He does an excellent job of explaining the process and the features of the home.
