These past couple of days have been busy for both the USGBC as well as the Emerging Professionals! We recently partnered with Skidmore, Owings & Merrill at their downtown Chicago offices to introduce them and neighboring firms VOA and Goettsch to the Chicago chapters of the USGBC and Emerging Professionals committee to see how they could become involved. USGBC Executive Director Brian Imus gave a short introductory speech, but left members and nonmembers alike to float through the space and learn about each other.
This week also wrapped up our informational Earth Day Mixer at the USGBC offices in the Merchandise Mart where we talked about our vision for the upcoming event at Lincoln Park with Chicago’s Friends of the Park. We gathered a few more signatures but still have room for many more! Don’t forget to sign up and register – and bring your friends! Your closet isn’t the only thing that needs some spring cleaning, after all..
