Get a more in-depth look of the green building industry and expand your network through this roundtable discussion with the movers and shakers of the industry – USGBC-National Capital Region’s Board Members! This event will kick-off with a tour of the USGBC LEED Platinum Headquarters led by the Center for Green School’s own Hannah Debelius, and then move to the board room for the roundtable discussion.

During this discussion, you will learn first-hand from industry professionals about their career paths – How did they get here? What do they do? And where can you go, in terms of professional development and opportunity?

Discover what education, skills and qualities are needed for key roles in the industry. Receive practical advice about how best to pursue a career in the green building industry, and gain knowledge on what the next level of sustainability is and how it is transforming this industry within the Washington, D.C. metro area and beyond.

This discussion will be set-up in a “speed-dating” like format with each board member at a large roundtable. During a 15 minute time-frame, participants at each table will be able to ask the board members questions they have, or ask the pre-populated questions provided at each table to help get the conversation started.

This event is exclusively for Emerging Professionals, so sign-up today for this FREE event! 

Note- if you are coming to the tour and the discussion, you need to get a ticket for both.
