Inspired by the green-building movement, the members of the CTGBC Education Committee coordinate, support and provide sustainable design and construction education to the community at large. The Education Committee facilitates achievement and maintenance of LEED credentials for LEED Accredited Professionals and provides other green-building educational opportunities to industry professionals and community members. By providing a network of professional members with various expertises across building sectors and specialties, the Education Committee aims to bring together like-minded people driven to learn more about the evolving green-building industry.
The committee is always looking for new and motivated volunteers to help develop new educational programs and learning opportunities that focus on LEED Certification, energy efficiency, water-use reduction, renewable energy solutions, material selections, and any of the countless sustainable design and construction strategies that are taking command of the building design industry. The committee co-chairs are Kurt Anderson and Marta Bouchard, supported by Executive Director Judy Swann. Please contact them directly if you are interested in joining the committee, have a green-building educational idea or opportunity to share, or wish to volunteer. We look forward to hearing from you!
The Education Committee meets via conference call on the third Monday of every month at 4:30 pm. Due to President's Day, the February call will be held on Tuesday, February 19th via toll free conference call. Anyone is welcome to join the Education Committee’s monthly conversation or to help coordinate an upcoming event! Feel free to call-in: 1-800-511-7985 | Access code: 786 737. Quarterly, the Education Committee meets together (typically an office or library space) in person.
