USGBC Georgia Chapter Residential Green Event

August 21, 2009

DSC_0005Last 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
