Last week, my blog had one of those moments when I realized it was growing up before my eyes. 

Robert J. MacPherson is the Chair of the ABA Forum on the Construction Industry.  In the recent issue of The Construction Lawyer (the Forum’s Journal), Mr. MacPherson published a farewell column as outgoing Chair (PDF).  I was stunned to read the following:

I was stunned that an established construction lawyer who is chair of the ABA Construction committee would use his farewell column to recognize my blog.  I was stunned to even learn that Mr. MacPherson was reading my blog.  And I was honored. 

I am honored that all of you continue to read this blog and I want to thank you. 

On August 13, Green Building Law Update will turn one year old.  So I am going to throw a blog birthday party on August 20.  The party will be located somewhere in Washington D.C. after work hours. 

The best part?  There will be party favors!  For the first 20 people to RSVP, I will send you one party favor consisting of my new favorite book.  If you would like to RSVP, just send me an email or respond in the comments section below. 

More details on birthday party to follow.  Hope to see you there.
