Hicks, Tavel honored as outstanding volunteers

EP Committee members Natalie Hicks and Lauren Tavel were honored as 2016 Outstanding Green Building Volunteers Nov. 2 at the USGBC Illinois Annual Meeting and Celebration at the DIRTT Showroom.

Hicks, who co-chairs the committee, has been instrumental in planning and executing various EP initiatives and events. She actively volunteers for chapter events and is also heavily involved with Chicago Women in Architecture. Most notably, her fundraising efforts helped secure significant donations that contributed to USGBC Illinois achieving one of its highest fundraising benchmarks at the annual Limelight gala.

Tavel tirelessly volunteers for chapter events, no more so than for the 2016 GreenBuilt Home Tour (GBHT). A member of the GBHT planning committee, she contributed to every aspect of the tour. Tavel created marketing materials, promoted the event through social media and regular blog posts, and served as a home tour guide on both days of the tour.

USGBC Illinois members Dan McJacobson, Rael Slutzky and Tommy Zakrzewski also earned the award. You can view the entire list here.

Congratulations, you two!
